Please contact the Risk Management Department if you would like to form a safety committee for your department.


    Why have a safety committee?

    The purpose of the committee is to help improve the safety and health of our employees and the conditions of our work environments and campuses.


    If I join a departmental safety committee, how much of my time am I expected to commit?

    The committees meet once a month to:

    • Review accidents that have occurred within the department.  
    • Analyze causes.
    • Recommend corrections.
    • Report findings at department/staff meetings.

    Meetings typically last 45 minutes to 1 hour (depending on the number of accidents to be reviewed).


    What is the incentive for participating in a safety committee?

    Each month, there will be a random drawing for a $25 gift card.  This drawing will include the name of each committee member present for the meeting.
