Creating Successful Project Safety Committees

Recent evaluation of the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster identified seven company practices that contributed to the incident - practices that could be common in most workplaces. One way to avoid potential safety disasters is to encourage collaborative efforts to improve safety across a worksite - by developing a project safety committee that:
  • Fosters a strong safety culture on the project
  • Creates a sense that everyone is responsible for safe work
  • Builds collaboration between various trades and contractors, and
  • Can improve efficiency and productivity
