JOINT HEALTH AND SAFETY COMMITTEE TRAINING BC VANCOUVER SURREY BURNABY RICHMOND DELTA LANGLEY VICTORIA
As of April 03, 2017 WorkSafeBC requires that all potential joint health and safety committee members in BC must receive 8 hrs of instruction and JHSC training. GG Health and Safety Consulting is proud to present our 8 hour JHSC training BC course which meets and exceeds all new WorkSafeBC requirements.
The joint health and safety committee supports the employer's duty to ensure a healthy and safe workplace. The joint committee brings together representatives of the employer and the workers, to identify and help resolve health and safety issues in the workplace. The joint committee plays an important role in your occupational health and safety program, giving workers and employers a way to work together to identify and find solutions to workplace health and safety issues. Any workplace with 20 or more employees must have a health and safety committee, while those with between 10 and 19 workers must have a designated worker health and safety representative. This course aims at helping participants to identify and interpret JHSC member's functions and duties and to carry out their responsibilities to promote workplace health and safety.
WHO NEEDS THE JHSC TRAINING 8 HOUR COURSE IN BC?
All members of the JHSC committee must be certified in JOSH Committee Training BC as per Worksafebc regulation. All members must take this JHSC training in order to meet regulation requirements. See regulations HERE. You must have a minimum of 4 members per committee meeting (once per month). 50% can me management representatives and the other 50% can be employee representatives. The employee representatives must be elected by the other workers. You can have more employee reps than management reps but you cannot have more management reps than employee reps on your committee (i.e. you can have 1 manager and 3 employees). So that means a minimum of 4 members must be trained as per regulation (minimum number of members per committee). It is also recommended train 1 to 2 alternates. These alternates can attend meetings once per month if for any reason one of the original 4 members cannot attend the monthly safety committee meeting.
