This week I.A.M. C.R.E.S.T is providing classroom and hands-on training on a Three-Day Site Specific Setting Up a Joint Labor/Management Safety and Health Committee Training Program to the union and the management at the MillerCoors facility. This was a three-day program that emphasizes the importance of joint relationships.
Participants learned how to set up their own effective Joint Labor and Management Committee by working together in small groups developing the necessary key elements and components for a proactive safety committee. Some of the key elements included organizational structure; identify committee roles and responsibilities and employee involvement.
Both the company and union drafted a joint mission statement and outline their joint commitments to safety and the employees of MillerCoors Brewery by; defining improved overall communications, identifying training and on-going training requirements for the committee and sub-committees through organizational and process techniques. At the completion of the program participants developed a written plan for the joint committee that includes operating procedures, roles and responsibilities, employee involvement, reporting and problem solving processes.
