Safety Committees
National Summary

This topic covers safety committees, which are groups composed of representatives from several departments whose purpose is to communicate about safety issues and coordinate safety efforts in the workplace.

There is no federal OSHA requirement for safety committees; however, OSHA encourages companies to form safety committees as a way to support safety efforts, improve safety culture, and increase communication between employees and management surrounding safety issues.

Many states require safety committees, and in some states, employers may get a discount on their workers' compensation premiums if they have a safety committee in place.
