Kingsport Leaders Promote Safety
Kingsport leaders are asking their employees to be more careful. In 2012, the city paid $1.2 million in workerís compensation claims. City leaders maintain that if employees would slow down, pay attention and use common sense, a lot of these injuries would not occur. Kingsport has a self-funded workerís compensation program that covers the approximately 1,640 full-time and 450 part-time employees of the city, including the school system. City leaders, including Mayor Dennis Phillips, say there needs to be some kind of accountability, possibly even a penalty for employees who donít follow safety protocol. (JH)
