Workers Compensation and Safety Information
Anderson County Government is committed to providing a healthy and safe work environment for our employees. In an effort to meet this commitment, we must ensure a working environment that motivates and supports all employees in their efforts to achieve zero work-related injuries and illnesses. Anderson County continues to strive to develop and maintain a well-trained, informed and competent workforce through clearly stated rules, work instructions, and proper equipment to safely complete all jobs.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA): OSHA’s mission is to prevent work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths. Since the agency was created in 1971, occupational deaths have been cut by 62% and injuries have declined by 42%. For further information, check out the OSHA Standards.
Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA): TOSHA’s mission is to assure the safety and health of Tennessee’s workers by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach, and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health.
Workers’ Compensation is a form of accident insurance paid by employers. If you’re injured on the job or acquire a work-related illness, workers’ comp will pay your medical expenses. And if you can’t work, it will also cover wage-loss compensation until you’re able to return to work.

PROPERTY & CASUALTY
Property insurance and casualty insurance (also known as P&C insurance) are types of coverage that help protect you and the property you work with. Casualty insurance includes liability coverage to help protect you if you’re found legally responsible for an accident that causes injuries to another person or damage to another person’s belongings.
