Hidden CRASIF Treasurers
- April 17, 2017
Attendees at the 49th Annual Commisioner’s Seminar on April 10-11, 2017 in Bay City were enriched by a session called “Discovering Hidden CRASIF Treasurers.” The session guided the attendees through the treasurer-trove of safety resources available through the CRASIF website and our partnership with Safetysurance. Director of Risk Consulting, Allen Roden, highlighted certain gems such as regular news feeds on workplace injuries and 24/7 access to safety training videos on operational hazards. He also informed those in attendance that road commission staff are being trained on how to use the system when our risk consultants make their on-site visits. Road commissioners were encouraged to make sure their road commission knew of the resources if they are a member of CRASIF.
Got Risk Control?
- February 28, 2017
Got Risk Control?? One of the many advantages of being a member of CRASIF is our risk control resources. Our best resource is our two Risk Consultants, Allen Roden and Melanie Green. They travel around the state providing safety training tailored specifically for road commissions. Steve Lucas, Managing Director of Cass CRC, recently sent us this note:
I wanted to pass on some positive encouragement to Al Roden and Melanie Greene. Al has been to the Cass County Road Commission several times providing training and inspections since the partnership with CRASIF. We were introduced to Melanie last fall when she provided training to our staff. Both Al and Melanie have great personalities that allow them to deliver their message and keep the trainees attention. As we all know not all subject matter can peak everyone’s interest but they find a way to accomplish it. Al is a wealth of knowledge in the subject matter and through the delivery his passion for safety shows loud and clear. Although Melanie has only visited us once her passion was evident throughout the entire training. I have never received any complaints from employees about the training provided by either of them and in fact have received positive comments. Please let them know that the Cass County Road Commission employee’s greatly appreciate both of them. Knowledge is powerful and through their teaching our employees work in a much safer environment.”
Need more training or safety audits? Contact Al at email@example.com or Melanie at firstname.lastname@example.org. Get Risk Control! See those workers’ compensation claims go down.
