About This Course:
A strong safety committee is a vital part of your company’s safety program. The specific duties of a safety committee member can vary however, there are some key strategies to follow when organizing an effective committee.

A successful safety committee serves many purposes, including increasing awareness of responding 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.

Many states already require some or all employers to conduct safety committee meetings. And, while some states don’t require formal safety committee meetings, they are considered an industry best practice for promoting and improving safety engagement.

Join us for an in-depth discussion led by Greg Duncan who will provide practical strategies and proven tips for developing a successful safety committee that advocates for safety, compliance and financial success.
