All Minnesota printers are now required to have Safety Committees
A recent rule change in MN now requires all printers, both large and small, to have a Safety Committee. Previously, this was only a requirement for printers with more than 25 employees. Now, this applies to everyone, including very small employers. A Safety Committee can help identify and eliminate safety hazards. Most importantly, a Safety Committee can help keep employees safe. The requirements for your Safety Committees are:
- The Safety Committee must be made up of representatives of both management and production employees.
- Safety Committees should meet at least quarterly.
- Keep records of the meetings through meeting minutes and/or an agenda.
If you have questions about starting a Safety Committee or would like help restarting or reenergizing an existing Safety Committee, contact either Paul Gutkowski at firstname.lastname@example.org 612-400-6205 or Cathy Malinowski at email@example.com 612-868-6771.
