Joint Health and Safety Committee

Virtual Classroom - 8 hours.
A Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) is composed of worker and management representatives and is a primary component of any employer’s Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management system. This co-operative involvement ensures that everything possible is done to identify, eliminate or mitigate workplace health and safety hazards. A JHSC has been a legal requirement for all BC workplaces with 20 or more regularly employed workers and must be given the necessary training to permit them to efficiently and effectively carry out their assigned duties. For smaller companies, a Worker Health and Safety Representative would be appointed in place of a JHSC.
