HEALTH & SAFETY COMMITTEES

Making Them Effective
Are you frustrated by inefficiencies in your committee?

It is said that “a camel is a horse designed by a committee”.  Many committees suffer the same problems – no clear idea of a committee’s functions, a few people do most of the talking, no set procedures are followed, no decisions are made, and no action occurs.  Indeed, having a bad safety committee can be worse than having no committee at all.
This one day Health and Safety Committee workshop enables existing and potential committee members to:
*  Understand the key factors for the effective operation of Health and Safety committees
*  Participate as effective members of health and safety committees
*  Review differences between Safety Officers, Health and Safety Representatives and members of the health and safety committee.

Answers will be provided to the common questions about committees:

 how many people should be on a committee
how do we construct an agenda
how long should the meeting last
​​​​​​​how often should we hold meetings
​​​​​​​how can we gain the support and involvement of our employees, supervisors and managers
​​​​​​​what should our committee talk about
​​​​​​​what is the role of the chairman – and other members
​​​​​​​how do we increase our knowledge and skills about health and safety?
