The Heart of New Mexico Symbol

Torrance County Safety Committee


The mission of the Torrance County Safety Committee is to protect the county’s human, capital and financial resources. The committee will strive to identify and eliminate or reduce sources of actual or potential loss to employees, citizens, and county property and equipment.

Accident prevention is the first step to be taken for an injury-free work force. Each and every employee is encouraged to think: “SAFETY FIRST”

One of the biggest hurdles in the Safety Committee structure can and often does occur during its infancy. When a group of dedicated individuals begin creating, re-motivating, or starting from scratch with a “Safety First” initiative, one of the most frustrating tasks can be deciding what function to serve.

The key word there is “serve”. Although planning, bylaws, mission statements and the like are all important, the underlying mentality of its members should be one of service. With this fundamental philosophy, a Safety Committee will set itself up for success, rather than failure.

The bottom line is that people can make or break any place, organization, or work environment. When the right people are in the right place, everything else lends itself to success.

Thank you for your time, support and effort,
Nick E. Sedillo - Chairman.
