Joint Health & Safety Committee

The Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) is a vital component of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) in many workplaces. It comprises representatives from both management and workers, collaborating to identify, assess, and address health and safety concerns in the workplace. The committee’s primary role is to promote and maintain a safe work environment by conducting workplace inspections, investigating incidents or hazards, making recommendations for improvements, and participating in the development and review of health and safety policies. JHSCs play a crucial role in facilitating communication between workers and management regarding OHS matters, fostering a culture of safety, and ensuring compliance with OHS regulations to safeguard the well-being of all employees.
