Safety Committees - How they Help with OSHA Compliance and Improve Safety

Why Should You Attend:
Safety committees are a requirement of a number of state safety laws and Federal OSHA is moving forward on a proposed regulation requiring them as part of every employer's written safety plan. Some states provide discounts on workers' compensation insurance premiums for companies with safety committees. Used effectively, they can help engage employees in safety and reduce accidents.
