An effective, supported and positively charged Safety Committee is a critical component for your organization’s Safety and Risk Management programs, ultimately designed to reduce employee injuries and illnesses.  This important program will help attendees to understand not only the CT requirements for the Committee itself, their role and other committee member’s roles, but also how to effectively manage meetings and get the most benefit and input from committee members.  We will include a mock safety committee meeting to reinforce the information presented during the session.
