Safety Committee

As safety becomes an increasingly important issue in the workplace, many departments are finding that preventing accidents and creating a safe work environment demands time, energy and resources. To address these demands, some departments are looking for alternatives to simply making safety the responsibility of one person. Departmental safety committees are an excellent approach to tackling multiple safety issues as well as providing a way for management and employees to work together to find solutions for safety issues in the workplace. This concept was recognized by the Facilities Management in April 1998, when the Facilities Management Safety Committee was established.

The Facilities Management Safety Committee enlists the input of departmental representatives from all fractions of Facilities Management including:
