Workplace Safety Committee Technical Assistance
One of the requirements for renewal of your workplace safety committee certification is that all committee members must be trained annually in at least three topics: safety committee operation, hazard identification and inspection and accident investigation. Depending upon the hazards and exposures in your workplace, you may want to train employees in more subjects and procedures. Required training must be conducted by trainers who hold a qualification recognized by the Department of Labor & Industry. The Bureau of Workers’ Compensation can provide this training at no cost to employers.
