Supercharging Safety Committees: How To Develop Effective Advocates Of Safety And Compliance Initiatives
|Date / Time:
A strong safety committee is a vital part of your company’s safety program. A safety committee serves many purposes, including increasing awareness of and prompt response to safety issues, promoting cooperation between employees and management, and fostering employee engagement.
Because safety committees often represent many departments, they have a bird’s eye view of facility safety and serve as an approachable body for safety or health complaints and suggestions.
The specific duties of a safety committee member can vary; however, there are some key strategies to follow when organizing an effective committee.
Join us for an in-depth discussion led by seasoned safety professional and trainer Karen Hamel. Ms. Hamel will provide practical strategies and proven tips for developing a successful safety committee that advocates for safety, compliance and financial success.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
