Members of a safety committee often consider themselves lucky and feel proud to have been chosen to be part of an important group within their organization. However, they may lack the experience and tools to contribute effectively. A top notch safety committee can be developed if members are provided the proper training.
One of the most important things a safety committee needs is purpose. The purpose of a safety committee is to bring workers and management together in a non-adversarial, cooperative effort to promote safety and health in each workplace. A safety committee assists the employer and makes recommendations for change.
Key components of a safety committee include:
When all stations of a facility work collaboratively toward a common purpose, the culture of the organization improves and most importantly, everyone is safer.
