The committee also formulates and conducts a sound safety program to:

  1. Help prevent occupational and other accidents, diseases and losses.
  2. Provide for improved medical care of employees.
  3. Reduce the cost of insurance to members.
  4. Represent Group 497 before appropriate bodies and agencies.
  5. Disseminate safety information to others.
