Garza County was awarded a 2020 Safety Achievement Award from the Texas Association of Counties Risk Management Pool (TAC RMP) for its record of commitment to safety in the workplace, as well as for controlling the county’s workers’ compensation claims at the recent April 26 Commissioners’ Court meeting.
To qualify for the award, the county participated in the TAC RMP’s Workers’ Compensation Program, possessed a safety program or accident prevention plan and met additional criteria.
Through its commitment to safe practices among county employees, Garza County works to reduce employee injuries and obtain substantial savings for taxpayers by minimizing workers’ compensation costs.
Garza County is one of 12 TAC RMP members statewide who have earned this award.
