(JHSC) Members Objective:

Joint health and safety committee training will give managers, supervisors, and members the training required to become "CERTIFIED MEMBERS" on the JHSC. This basic but consistent training will assist them in developing, implementing and maintaining an effective health and safety program.


What is a joint health and safety committee? (JHSC)

(JHSC) is a forum for bringing the internal responsibility system into practice. The committee will consist of labour and management representatives who meet on a regular basis to discuss and deal with health and safety issues. The advantage of a (JHSC) is that the in-depth practical knowledge of specific tasks such as labour is brought together with the larger overview of company policies, and procedures (management). Another significant benefit is the enhancement of a co-operative attitude among all parts of the work force toward solving health and safety related problems. In smaller companies with fewer than a specified number of employees a health and safety representative is generally required. Please consult the health and safety legislation for details. 

This committee may also be referred to as the Industrial Health and Safety Committee, Joint Work Site Health and Safety Committee, Occupational Health Committee, Workplace safety and health committee, or Health and Safety Committee.
