The first step in making a safety committee work most effectively is making sure that it has the right members. It’s good to keep the committee at a manageable size to ensure that all of the participants feel that they are really making contributions. You can generally obtain good results from committees of no more than seven members. Here are a few more areas the article can help you address:
- Who should select committee members?
- What personality types should you look for - positive, skeptical, or both?
- How long will a term on the committee last?
- What questions will employees have about the committee?
- Who should lead the meetings - management or the workers?
