Employee Safety is a top priority at the County of Alameda. We recognize that on-the-job accidents cause unnecessary human suffering, productivity loss, and in some cases, financial loss to employees, their families, and the County.

Performing your job safely is the most important thing you can do for yourself and for those who work around you.
