TOPICS:

Joint Health and Safety Committees - Are You Meeting the Requirements?

The internal responsibility system puts in place an employee-employer partnership in ensuring a safe and disease free workplace. Workplace parties’ compliance with their respective statutory duties is essential to the establishment of a strong Internal Responsibility System in the workplace.

A health and safety committee is a joint forum for employers and employees working together to improve workplace health and safety. This committee (JHSC) is a legal requirement for any Ontario workplace with 20 or more workers at any one site. In workplaces where there are between 6 and 19 regularly employed workers, the law requires that you have a health and safety representative....are you meeting your obligations?

Speaker: Tom Abercrombie, Ministry of Labour

Tom Abercrombie CHSC, CRSP is the past CSSE Regional Vice President for Ontario & Quebec, Past Chair of the Eastern Ontario Chapter and an Inspector with the Ministry of Labour.



Surviving to Thriving

Successful JHSC operate in an atmosphere of co-operation and avoid becoming adversaries. They leave their hats at the door and work together toward a common goal: to establish and maintain healthy and safe workplaces. Hang on; our guest speakers are going to take you on their journey as they navigate from surviving to thriving.

Speakers: Grace Weisenberg- Management Co-Chair JHSC & Jodi Julius-Worker Co-Chair JHSC; Pembroke Regional Hospital



From Good to Great-Accident Investigations made Easy

Finding the causes of an accident and taking steps to control or eliminate it can help prevent similar accidents from happening in the future. Always keep in mind that effective incident investigation means fact-finding, not fault-finding.
