Having effective monthly safety meetings that result in a Certified Safety Committee have many benefits:

  • A guaranteed 5% discount on Workers’ Compensation insurance premiums
  • Additional workers’ compensation insurance discounts since more insurance carriers will want to quote your business
  • A safer work environment, typically resulting in reduced work-related injuries which will further reduce workers’ compensation insurance costs.

  • 12 months of services and support
  • Guidance forming your safety committee to ensure it meets Pennsylvania’s guidelines
  • Monthly meeting agendas
  • Review of monthly meeting minutes

NOTE: The Webinar Package includes the Video Package also.

This package not only saves our clients time, but we have found that clients are much more successful completing their monthly meetings.  It is also very beneficial to organizations with multiple locations or have safety committee members who are typically not in a single location.

  • Meetings are conducted via webinar (CISCO Webex®) offering a Q&A format.
  • Meetings cover a designated safety topic in addition to other timely safety issues and concerns.
  • Committee members can participate in the “live” webinar meetings via computer, iPad, iPhone, Android, or other compatible formats.
  • Committee members communicate with the moderator either verbally or privately using a “chat” function.
  • Committee members do not have to be in the same location.
  • You have your choice of meetings that take place 15 or more times each month.
  • You register online.
  • You receive a registration confirmation email.
  • The day before the webinar you receive a “reminder” with a URL link to the agenda and related documents that will be part of the webinar meeting.
  • One hour before the meeting you receive an emailed INVITATION with the login information.
  • Once the webinar is completed you will receive your completed minutes in an Adobe format for review and posting in your workplace.
