Safety committees play an essential role in creating safety awareness in their work groups and organizations. They're involved with identifying hazards, analyzing ergonomic risks, investigating accidents, and many other tasks.
Broadly stated, a safety committee has two overall missions: to act as a conduit for delivering safety information to the entire workforce, and to provide a channel for feedback and suggestions from the workers.
The specifics of each committee depend on the project itself and personalities and skills of those who serve on it. By having the right team put together will positively affect the bottom line and save lives.
