Representatives from our membership form one half of the Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee, whose mandate is to oversee, in terms of occupational health and safety, all actions and equipment, and to encourage all of our members to work as safely as possible.
Our committee members (Labour Members) are all certified by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act. We, as a committee, can make recommendations to the employer regarding any aspect of our work or equipment that could be made safer or improved from a health and safety standpoint.
The committee meets regularly to review health and safety concerns, we review all workplace accident reports and vehicle accident reports filed by our members. The chart below identifies the Committee Members.
