Employee Safety


  • The safety and well-being of our employees is very important, and to guard it, the City tries to identify and eliminate employee exposures to avoidable hazards and conditions that can lead to injury, illness or accidents. City departments have Injury and Illness Prevention Programs (IIPP) to help maintain a safe and healthful work environment and to comply with State regulations.

    Safety is everybody's job. All employees are encouraged to remain alert and to report hazardous conditions and unsafe acts to their supervisor. Supervisors are responsible for providing a safe and healthful work environment and ensuring that employees work safely.

    To assist supervisors and employees many CCSF Departments have professional health and safety staff available. If you have a health or safety concern, you should first discuss the issue with your supervisor. If you are not comfortable discussing the issue with your supervisor or this does not resolve the problem, you should contact the occupational safety and health staff for your department. If you are not sure who to contact, you can call the Department of Public Health Occupational Safety and Health Section at 415.554.2797.
