H&S Committees (1 day)*

Are you frustrated by inefficiencies in your committees?

It is said that “a camel is a horse designed by a committee”.  Many committees suffer the same problems – no clear idea of a committee’s functions, a few people do most of the talking, no set procedures are followed, no decisions are made, and no action occurs.  Indeed, having a bad safety committee can be worse than having no committee at all.

The 1 day Health and Safety Committee training enables existing and potential committee members to:

  • Understand the key factors for the effective operation of Health and Safety committees
  • Participate as effective members of health and safety committees
  • Review differences between Safety Officers, Health and Safety Representatives and members of the health and safety committee.

Answers will be provided to the common questions about committees:

  • how many people should be on a committee
  • how do we construct an agenda
  • how long should the meeting last
  • how often should we hold meetings
  • how can we gain the support and involvement of our employees, supervisors and managers
  • what should our committee talk about
  • what is the role of the chairman – and other members
  • how do we increase our knowledge and skills about health and safety?

Duration: 1 day (2 & 3 day versions are available)

* This course is only offered as an in-house program.
