Safety Committee

Chairman: Charles Nichols Sr



It shall be the duty of this committee to develop, organize, schedule, and/or approve classes for the purpose of coordinating Safety Training Courses in the State of Florida. The committee shall determine the criteria and assist the Training Director and the Regions in scheduling the speakers and instructors for the schools.

To be successful, a safety and health program must embody proper attitudes towards injury and illness prevention on the part of employers, supervisors, and employees. It requires cooperation on all safety and health matters, not only of the employer and employee, but between the employee and all of his co-workers. Only through such a cooperative effort can a safety program in the best interest of all be established and preserved. Safety is no accident; think safety and the job will be safer.

Each of us has an individual responsibility to prevent accidents. The FW&PCOA does not believe that "accidents are bound to happen." We, therefore, give the utmost consideration to the safety of our membership. Part of our jobs is the prevention of accidents. The right way to perform a job is the safe way! Please remember, a little common sense and caution can prevent most accidents from occurring.

Sponsorship coming soon!
