Safety Committee Chair

Program Description

Many states require an employer to establish a safety committee/team to support a safe and healthy workplace. Unfortunately, too many safety committees/teams lack the leadership needed to be effective. This program is specifically designed to help develop the knowledge and skills of the safety committee/team leader (also called the chairperson). With a trained leader in place, committees will be able to have the momentum to be a powerful force for positive change within an organization.

Learn how to effectively manage your safety committee!

Is your safety committee functioning as a "Safety Consultant?" If not, this program is what you have been looking for.
