Safety committees are not required in all 50 states, but they should be, as they can be extremely helpful in making sure an effective safety culture is developed and maintained. This course will introduce you to the various responsibilities that a safety committee typically has in a company. If your company doesn't yet have a safety committee, let's get one going!
Involving your employees in an activity such as a safety committee that directly affects their safety and health is the right thing to do. Below, are reasons why it's also the smart thing to do.
The key to a successful safety management system is effective communications and the safety committee can help to make sure that happens. Consequently, in this course we are going to explore concepts and tools to help you start and grow an effective labor-management safety committee, assess and evaluate your current safety committee, and recommend changes to improve the effectiveness of your safety committee.
