Hazard Communication Team (HCT)
SHEAR Preferred Process
The HSI Auburn Site Committee works diligently to improve the safety and health of Auburn employees. Their dedication is evident at all levels and in all work areas. From Incident Investigation training to ergonomics, the Auburn Site Committee brings employees and management together to work proactively on area-specific challenges and to enhance the health and safety of all employees in the factory environment. The committee consists of a dedicated team of IAM-represented employees, management, SHEA, IAM staff, and other affected groups.
The Site Committee meets monthly and conducts Safety Tours to identify potential hazards, health and safety improvements that can be shared with other organizations. Site-specific initiatives like Safety in Motion ergonomics education, Incident investigation, and MoveSMART have spread the word on the advantages of incident prevention compared to reaction.

The Frederickson Site Committee was right on top of it when employees complained about the noise level in the factory. They developed a site-specific hearing protection program, including a site-specific training video, for employees in the Frederickson facility.
They were also among the first to adopt the Incident Investigation process to determine root causes of accidents or incidents, and convert that knowledge into a proactive plan for prevention. When the pilot training course was offered, so many people signed up that additional sessions were required.
Like other Site Committee members, they are a dedicated team of IAM-represented employees, management, SHEA, IAM staff, and other affected groups who step forward when safety issues arise and work together to implement a lasting solution.

A vital goal of the Health and Safety Institute is to promote training that relates to employees.
This means involving employees in both the development and delivery of training for programs such as "Lockout, Tag, Tagout," and "Hazard Communication."
The training that we provide is designed to build relationships between stewards and supervisors and all employees so they can work together to resolve health and safety issues.
The Institute sponsors a number of other classes aimed at educating employees and managers on many aspects of safety and health.
The courses are developed to be relevant, timely, and consistent. To learn more about each of the Institute-sponsored training courses, click on the links below.
