An effective way to encourage employee participation in your workplace safety program is to create a safety committee. The committee can help share the responsibilities of implementing and monitoring your company safety program. Typical duties might include:

  • Workplace self-inspections.
  • Accident investigations.
  • Developing safe work practices.
  • Developing written safety programs.
  • Facilitating safety training.

The committee also can help promote other activities, which encourage employees to support the organization’s safety program.
