Supercharging Safety Committees: Proven Strategies to Develop a Powerful Ally for Your Safety Program - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

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.

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 when to ensure that your committee has the best chance of success.

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.

Use this all-new, on-demand webinar with Abby Ferri, CSP, a senior safety consultant with Merjent, Inc., who will layout a framework for establishing and engaging your safety committee for long-term success.
