Power Up Your Safety Committee

We have a whole catalog of tools and services for your team to help improve safety at your district

Safety committees allow teams to discuss, issues that might not come to managements attention otherwise. It creates a culture where everyone, not just managers, can contribute to safety. Many safety committees assign monthly topics and/or set achievable training goals for their districts, others invite experts to educate employees, or have dedicated safety officers to help create policies.

Safety is an ongoing process. Your safety committee needs tools and support to ensure a safe workplace for everyone. Take a look at how our services can assist your district’s safety committee.

Budget: Safety Grant Program

The best way to utilize Safety Grant funding is to make upgrades or purchases that will have a lasting impact on your district’s safety. One district purchased an ADA lift for a swimming pool. Others have put in slip-proof flooring, upgraded safety equipment, installed security cameras and fencing, or even hired outside training.

Year after year, this program gives you the ability to improve your workplace in ways that otherwise might not have been possible. Contact us if you have questions about how to use your Safety Grant funds this year, or if you’re wondering whether your purchase would qualify for our program.

Online Training: TargetSolutions

Training is a powerful tool. Unlike many tools, however, training isn’t shelf-stable. People don’t retain every word and idea they’re exposed to, and over time, people forget the lessons they picked up.

That’s why we provide free online employee training to every member. TargetSolutions is available on any internet-connected device, and makes it easy to keep your staff up to date. Some districts have their safety committees assign training topics for everyone either monthly or quarterly.

Recognition: Safety Awards Program

Everyone loves recognition, whether it comes from managers or from outside. The Pool provides a few awards programs that allow members to seek recognition for their employees, or their work.

Our quarterly Safety Heroes program recognizes member employees who have made a big difference in their workplace safety culture. Employees in this program can be nominated by anyone. But this is a great opportunity for managers and supervisors to demonstrate their appreciation. You can nominate an employee today at csdpool.com/heroes.

Wrapping Up

It takes more than just convenient training platforms and free money to create an effective safety committee. Successful safety committees bridge the gap between management and employees by fostering communication and cooperation.

Communication and investment in your employees’ day-to-day operations can go a long way towards improving morale and the safety culture of your district.
