Live Webinar: Wednesday, June 19, 2019

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how a successful safety committee will improve your organization’s safety culture, increase employee engagement, and create a safer workplace for your employees


 

OSHA continues to focus enforcement efforts on machine guarding and lockout tagout (LOTO) compliance, as many employers fail to comply with these rules. According to a federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey, 80% of workers fail to shut down energized equipment before servicing it. 

An effective safety committee is a vital part of your company’s safety program and a key vehicle for increasing employee engagement, fostering open communication, and building a strong safety culture. The specific duties of a safety committee member can vary; however, there are some key strategies to follow to give your committee the best chance of success.

A successful safety committee serves many purposes, including 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 require some or all employers to conduct safety committee meetings. And, even where safety committee meetings are not required, they are considered an industry best practice for promoting and improving safety engagement.

Join us on June 19 for an all-new webinar that will provide practical strategies and proven tips for developing a successful safety committee that advocates for safety, compliance, and financial success.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Structure the common roles and responsibilities of safety committees to set your committee up for success
  • Apply the advantages and benefits of forming a safety committee and how to leverage these to achieve management buy-in
  • Secure representatives from many areas of the company on a safety committee
  • Make your safety committee an effective ally of your safety program
  • Identify and avoid the most common challenges and pitfalls of safety committees
  • Recognize the skills and training all safety committee members require to be effective in their roles
  • Set and achieve ambitious goals, measure progress effectively, and communicate results to gain buy-in across the organization
  • And more!
