A Safety Summit is an opportunity for managers and supervisors to enhance their expertise in safety and health issues. It encourages attendees to participate in discussions focused on departmental-specific risk issues.
The goal of a Safety Summit is to achieve long-term risk reduction through risk recognition and safety promotion.
Why not offer a Safety Summit to your managers and supervisors?
The Probation Department did just that.
Managers discussed topics including trips, slips, and falls; department policies; and workers' compensation costs.
Their Safety Summit raised enthusiasm among department managers and provided them the opportunity to network and share ideas on improving their facility's safety performance relative to trips, slips, and falls.
Why were these topics selected? These are some of their leading cost drivers for workers' compensation claims.
