Safety Committee Essentials

If you are a Safety Committee Member, it's important that you have a sound understanding of the Work Health and Safety legislation and develop a consultative approach to Work Health and Safety. 

The purpose of the safety committee is to assist management in providing a safe workplace. The committee members, act as the liaison between workers and management. Committee members work to ensure a cooperative effort to improve safety in the workplace.
