Connecticut General Statute § 31-40v requires each employer with 25 or more workers, including municipalities and local public agencies, to establish and administer safety and health committees. The purpose of this legislation is to bring employers and employees together in a cooperative and effective effort to promote safety and health in the workplace.
The Town of Rocky Hill Safety Committee has been established to identify, and, if necessary, facilitate processes that address the risks that may arise from, or affect, the Town of Rocky Hill's operations and activities on behalf of its residents. Membership is comprised of employees from broad representation across departments. Additionally, members of the Police Department and Board of Education administrators are regular participants in these meetings. All operations in the Town of Rocky Hill are required to cooperate with the Town of Rocky Hill's Safety Committee in this effort.
The goal of the Town of Rocky Hill's Safety Committee is to eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses by involving employees and management in collaboratively identifying hazards and developing methods of how to prevent them.
To achieve this goal, the Town of Rocky Hill has made a commitment to identifying and implementing best practices relative to a municipal risk management program.
The Safety Committee compliance letter is issued by the Connecticut Workers' Compensation Commission.
