TRAINING THURSDAY: Responsibilities of Joint Health and Safety Committee
Change is afoot, and the ICBA training department is responding to it!
As of April 2017, WorkSafeBC’s changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations around Joint Health and Safety committees and Worker Health and Safety Representatives makes training mandatory. Anyone joining a Joint Health and Safety Committee is required to take at least eight hours of training. ICBA is pleased to be able to offer this training as part of our continued commitment to exceptional customer service for our members and the construction industry as a whole (remember, you don’t have to be a member of ICBA to take our courses!).
Participants will learn:
- How to use the OHS Regulation and WC Act to access health & safety requirements;
- How to explain the roles and functions of the Joint Committee and the Worker Representatives;
- How to perform an incident investigation;
- How to perform a formal site inspection; and
- How to:
- Promote workplace health and safety
- Assist in ensuring the health and safety program elements are implemented;
- Conduct and participate in Joint Committee Meetings; and
- Work cooperatively to address workers’ health and safety concerns.
