Role of the Design Team
The Design Team is the engine of the participatory program. This core group of line-level employees meets with a Facilitator, considers workplace health and safety issues, and crafts solutions appropriate to their work environments. The Steering Committee identifies and recruits members for the design team who have the backgrounds, interests and skills needed.
General Goals of the Design Team
- Select workplace health/safety issues and design interventions to address them
- Develop a "business case" for interventions to present to the Steering Committee
- Strengthen communication between management and the workforce about health and safety concerns
- Support workplace interventions initiated by the Steering Committee
