If You See Something, Say Something

We like to provide positive recognition to Henry County employees who are doing it right!  If you witness a county employee going above and beyond in the safety measures he or she takes on the job, please let us know.  Also, if you witness a Henry County employee performing his or her duties in an unsafe manner, including the operation of a county vehicle, please report the incident with as much information as possible, and Risk Management will investigate the incident.  Reports of both should be sent to:  riskmanagement@co.henry.ga.us
