COURSE DESCRIPTION: Too often, safety committees don’t live up to expectations. The first few meetings are exciting and the group comes up with a list of great ideas. But enthusiasm wanes when proposed initiatives stall or get shot down. Discouraged, the group loses its spark and meetings degenerate into little more than “donut-eating gripe sessions.”

That’s tragic because having an ineffective safety committee is more dangerous than having no committee at all. Why? Because committees that consistently fail to deliver results send the message that safety really doesn’t matter.

The question is how do you build a safety committee that truly drives a culture of safety? What “best practices” are world-class organizations using to form and maintain committees that keep top management and front line workers on the same page, help pinpoint and correct workplace hazards and ultimately reduce injuries and deaths?

Here’s some help to get you started in the right direction … whether you’re building from scratch or trying to reinvigorate an existing team. In this 60-minute audio conference program, Chip Darius, President of Safety Priority Consultants, will share with you an action plan he’s developed over the last 25 years to make safety committees a truly wise investment of time and energy. No ivory-tower theory, just actionable ideas you can put to use right away.

The program will cover:

  • The #1 reason safety committees fail – and how to avoid that common trap
  • Techniques to get active participation from the front line
  • A step-by-step approach to making a solid “business case” for committee initiatives
  • Guidance on who should be on the committee and how long they should serve
  • What works – and what doesn’t – when it comes to leading and managing the committee
  • How to decide how much influence the committee should have
  • Why it’s essential that you set specific meeting performance expectations
  • Proven ideas to help align the committee with company culture
  • Why it’s so critical to avoid the "safety cop" syndrome
  • Ways to overcome typical management push-back on committee proposals
  • A system for tracking corrective action items.

Public or private, general industry or construction, this program is a must. Handouts, forms and checklists will make this seminar immediately useful in your company or agency.
