  • Description:
    Merriam Webster s Collegiate Dictio nary (1996) defines team as a number of persons associated together in work or activity and teamwork as work done by several associates with each doing a part, but all subordinating personal prominence to the efficiency of the whole (page 1209). According to Dr. Geller, author of Building Successful Safety Teams: Together Everyone Achieves More (1998), a team of people working together for industrial safety consists of as few as two people or as many as fifteen who have complementary skills, assignments, or abilities for completing a particular task. Effective teams have members who share a common mission and relevant goals, and they share specific methods to reach their goals and accomplish their mission. They also have an evaluation system in place for holding themselves mutually accountable for goal-directed responsibilities.
