This course deals with various models of extending "ownership" of safety program policy and administration in organizational cultures. In many Canadian jurisdictions, "joint safety committees" are a regulatory requirement and in others, they are seen as a vehicle to improve corporate culture and enhance mutual trust/respect across the hierarchy. Regardless of whether a compliance or policy issue, putting stakeholders from various levels of the hierarchy in a role where they are charged with producing results for the safety program requires a rich understanding of the human qualities of communication, trust, power sharing, and engagement.
