The City of Lincoln City received a Bronze Safety Award at the League of Oregon Cities annual conference last week.
CIS (CityCounty Insurance Services) presented the award to City Councilor Susan Wahlke.
CIS safety awards are based on a Total Time-Loss-Index rating known as DART (Days Away, Restrictions and Transfers). DART was created by OR-OSHA and is based on trends of more that 200,000 employee hours – and if those injuries and illnesses were severe enough to warrant Days Away, Restrictions and Transfers.
The benchmark for a city to qualify for a Bronze award is to amass at least 55,000 total work hours before a loss time injury occurs to an employee.
