Have you ever had this experience?


Do you hear sighs, groans, or sarcastic remarks when the "safety committee meeting" is announced? Best safety management practices encourage safety teams to help employers improve their safety management systems. The primary forum to conduct safety committee business is the monthly meeting. How do you turn those groans into smiles of anticipation? That's what this course is all about!

Conducting an interesting safety committee meeting can make the difference between success and failure of the safety committee. Planning and managing a successful safety committee meeting requires commitment: it takes effort, time and money. To receive a positive return for your effort, it's important that your safety committee meetings be as fruitful as possible.

This online course will help you and your safety staff conduct interesting and effective safety committee meetings that will get results. We’ll explore methods, techniques, and management concepts for effectively preparing for the meeting; communicating before, during and after the meeting; following-up with action and recognition after the meeting.

Course goals

In this course, you'll gain a greater understanding of the best practices related to conducting an effective safety committee/team meeting. We'll discuss the primary role and purposes of the safety committee. After all, if the committee doesn't know what it's about, how can it know what to do during a meeting? We'll explore some methods and techniques for making meetings more successful. Finally, we'll look at some meeting management concepts and practices.

As with any learning experience, the more involved you are, the more you'll get out of the material. So, be sure to read all the material and do your best in answering the module quiz questions.
