Joint Health and Safety Meetings are extremely important, to the point that they’re required by law in every Canadian Jurisdiction through CCOHS.
The only problem is, most people don’t take them that seriously.
Often times these safety meetings are seen as long, boring, and one more thing that gets jammed into a busy workday. That needs to change. We need to get more employees engaged and interested in these meetings in order to achieve the best results.
This video gives some awesome tips on how to make the most out of your safety committee meetings.
The best advice we can give is remember what these meetings are for. When attendance is low, things get off topic and it feels like nobody is listening, don’t give up.
