Successful Project Safety Committees
Although it might seem that forming a project safety committee takes the responsibility for safety away from individual employees and shifts it to a small group, that is not the case. Safety professionals who have successfully implemented such committees will point out that awareness of safe work practices grows. Committee members become evangelists of a sort, bringing the safety message to their coworkers in a way that is far more compelling than any message from a supervisor could ever be. Instead of playing games based on blame, they look for answers in collaborative, cooperative approaches-and what workplace could not benefit from more of that?
