Establish committee. An employer with more than 25 employees, and any manufacturer of explosives regardless of the number of employees, must establish a safety committee. The committee must include employee representatives. If the employees are represented by a labor organization, the representatives of employees must be selected by the employees and not appointed by the employer.

The employer must pay employee members of a safety committee engaged in committee business as if that employee were performing his or her usual work activities.
