COVID-19 UPDATE for 2020 Highway Safety Days and MSHA Part 46 Refresher Training

A pillar of the County Mutual and Community Insurance Corporation program is to provide extensive, budget-neutral, risk management services. With the approach of our most significant event of the year, Highway Safety Days, we wish to offer you the safety training and compliance with MSHA requirements regardless if it may be in person or via another medium. 

In light of the government's direction to limit the size of groups and to engage in social distancing aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19, we have begun to explore contingency plans for our 2020 Highway Safety Days. Please find potential options here and stay tuned to this website for the latest updates: https://conta.cc/2xQp6vV
