Training & Workshops
Training and Workshops are meant to provide timely and important information to help cities mitigate risks. The League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust (LMCIT) offers general and customized training on a range of topics, including:
- Safety Assistance Programs
Minnesota cities have a range of state and federal OSHA mandates with which they must comply. LMCIT has developed two options for members - the Regional Safety Groups initiative and OSHA/Safety Assistance program. The OSHA/Safety Assistance introductory series – or 100 level – classes will be offered in October and advanced – or 300 level– classes will be offered in September.

- Safety & Loss Control Workshops
Each spring, LMCIT holds a series of one-day workshops at locations throughout the state. These sessions focus on providing practical information for cities to help avoid losses and reduce the costs of losses that may occur. Several tracks are offered for various staff, including public works, fire, peace officers, administration, elected officials, and parks and recreation. These workshops are inexpensive and registration fees include informational materials from all the sessions.

- Specialized Loss Control Workshops
Half-day workshops are offered at various locations annually in the Fall on topics such as confined space entry; street, snow-plowing, and sewer maintenance policies; trenching; and chainsaw usage. Depending upon the topic, participants will participate in hands-on simulations, learn about OSHA standards and requirement, and receive sample policies and models, and more.
