What is a Health and Safety Committee?

A health and safety committee is a group of people who are responsible for identifying and addressing hazards in the workplace. The committee should be made up of representatives from all levels of the organisation, including management, employees, and health and safety professionals.

Health and safety Committees are at the core of the health and safety activities in the workplace.
