Horry County Risk Management Wins Award

On February 7, 2014 in General

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Human Resources and Risk Management Office has received the Sustained Excellence in Risk Management award from the South Carolina Association of Counties (SCAC) for fiscal year 2012-2013. The award is based on a self-audit and other progress reports that the Association has on Horry County’s continuous commitment to creating a safe work environment. Some progress report items include:

• Participation in Horry County’s safety program by the County Administrator and Assistant Administrators.
• The availability of a full time staff to manage the safety and risk management programs.
• Having a low worker’s compensation experience of .75 for 2012-2013 (this means that Horry County’s worker’s compensation insurance premiums are at least 25% below the average).

This commitment was supported by Horry County Council’s March 2013 safety resolution and the County Administrator’s safety policy statement.
