Joint Loss Management Safety Committee

Every employee of the Town of Freedom has the right to a workplace free from safety and health hazards (Lab 1403.01).  A “Joint Loss Management” program is designed to prevent incidents and illnesses, and is established jointly between the employees and the management of the Town.  Unsafe acts, unsafe conditions and incidents all demonstrate a weakness in the management system.  This program provides the framework and structure for safety concerns to be managed like any other function of government through planning, organization, leadership, control and communication.  It is an established fact that a well-trained, well-disciplined and well-supervised employee operating in a safe and healthful environment is less likely to have an incident.

RSA 281-A:64 III Every employer of 15 or more employees shall establish and administer a joint loss management committee composed of equal numbers of employer and employee representatives. Employee representatives shall be selected by the employees. If workers are represented by a union, the union shall select the employee representatives. The joint loss management committee shall meet regularly to develop and carry out workplace safety programs, alternative work programs that allow and encourage injured employees to return to work, and programs for continuing education of employers and employees on the subject of workplace safety. The committee shall perform all duties required in rules adopted pursuant to this section.
