Mandate: To comply with state injury and illness prevention statutes, the campus requires every department to have a safety committee. The law requires that safety committees meet at least quarterly and have minutes recorded and kept on file. Meetings should include the following activities:
• Setting schedules for regular inspections of workspaces and reviewing inspection findings.
• Reviewing recent accidents; establishing or reviewing preventive measures and any correction deadlines.
• Addressing safety suggestions or complaints.
• Reviewing and investigating reports of hazardous conditions and coordinating corrections.
• Submitting suggestions to department management for safety program improvements.
• Developing and maintaining a system to communicate with others in the department regarding safety issues, such as with posters, fliers, or suggestion boxes
Authority: The Chair of the PMB Saftey Committee is: Professor Anastasios MELIS <firstname.lastname@example.org>
