Manufacturing leaders understand the benefits of having an organized and effective safety committee – reduced insurance premiums, healthy employees, and quality on-time production. Safety is an essential component of any competitive manufacturing company, but what makes a safety committee effective? At Fusion OEM, the success of our safety committee depends on team involvement, support from management, high visibility and training. As a result, employees experience increased awareness of safety issues, quick response to safety related issues, and cooperation between employees and management in solving safety issues.
The main goal of every safety committee in a manufacturing company is to facilitate and maintain a safe work environment. A well designed safety committee should foster a sense of ownership by giving employees an opportunity to directly improve safety and reduce injuries within a company, while enhancing communication between management and employees. To accomplish this, a commitment to safety must become a shared responsibility for the entire team. At Fusion OEM, our Safety Committee is responsible for developing and reviewing safety policies, procedures, and communicating safety issues and tips to the rest of the team.
