Learn roles and responsibilities, legal obligations, and best practices
As part of the Workplace Safety North (WSN) Feed Your Brain Lunch and Learn Series, you're invited to attend an information session, "Building a strong Joint Health and Safety Committee," on Wednesday, Feb. 20 in Sudbury.
Health and Safety Representatives (HSR) and Joint Health and Safety Committees (JHSC) have a shared goal to establish and maintain healthy and safe workplaces. The session includes a review of legal roles and responsibilities, to help you ensure you're meeting the requirements of all relevant occupational health and safety legislation. Best-practice strategies will be introduced, which your team can use to reinforce and raise the visibility of the health and safety program in the workplace, and align it to company objectives.
You play a critical role in the internal responsibility system (IRS) of your workplace and there is strong evidence to support the use of JHSC assessments to improve impact and committee effectiveness. If you have some tools and resources you think would help others, please bring them along.
Enjoy a complimentary light lunch, or bring your own. Please note that photos and videos may be taken of the presenter during the event for marketing and training purposes. Seating is limited, so be sure to reserve your place.
