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 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.
