The Safety Council strives to enhance the overall safety and health of the people who live and labor in our community by sharing and applying collective knowledge, skills and experiences for the purpose of promoting and facilitating continuous safety improvements. Some of the meetings are held jointly with the Human Resources Council if the topic is of interest to both groups.
Participants are comprised of safety, maintenance and human resource personnel who handle company/business/plant safety issues like OSHA requirements, ergonomics, environmental safety, and emergency disaster plans.
The group generally meets every other month, usually the 2nd Tuesday for a lunch meeting. Contact Machelle Dykes or call 217-442-6201 for more information. Upcoming meetings include February 13 with a presentation on the proper inspection process of safety eyewash and showers, and on March 13 with a Business Preparedness update by the Vermilion County Emergency Management Agency.
