One the JHSC’s most important functions is making recommendations to management on safety. For example, the JHSC may recommend that workers be retrained on fall protection if it notes that workers haven’t been complying with the fall protection rules. Or it may recommend that new safety rules be implemented or safety equipment be purchased.
