a safety and health committee is an effective way to involve workers in your
safety and health program. Committees play an important role in promoting
psychological safety, making recommendations and leading by example. By
involving workers in toolbox talks, focus groups, interviews and surveys, it
encourages engagement and contributes to the psychological safety in the
workplace. The safety and health committee can take an active role in promoting
psychological safety by adding it as a standing item on the meeting agenda,
including it in regular inspections and including it in investigations.
