PA Workplace Safety Committee Certification Program

Would you like to reduce your workers' compensation premiums by 5 percent each year? Thousands of PA employers have already saved millions in insurance premiums by setting up a workplace safety committee that meets the requirements for state certification. That's millions that companies are using to buy new equipment, hire more workers, expand their businesses, and even pay bonuses to employees -- money that used to go to paying insurance premiums!

What do you have to do?

Establish a safety committee that meets certain requirements, fill out a committee certification application and have it approved by the Department of Labor and Industry.

What are the basic committee requirements?

  • Committees must have a minimum of 2 employer and 2 employee representatives, meet monthly and be in operation for at least 6 full months.
  • All committee members must be trained by qualified trainers in safety committee operation, hazard inspection and accident investigation.
  • Committee meeting agendas, attendance lists and meeting minutes must be kept.
