Joint Health and Safety Committee Functional Support

Your organization has formed a Joint Health and Safety Committee and become certified through our two JHSC certification courses. The committee is ready to put what they’ve learned into action, but have found that learning everything about their responsibilities and effectively putting it into practice are two completely different things.

We understand that effectively implementing a new Joint Health and Safety Committee is no easy task. Regardless, it is required under multiple sources of legislation, including the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act. Advanced Consulting and Training is here to help with functional support for your organization’s health and safety committee to help them get more familiar with practical application of what they learned during their certification courses.

If your organization has had a committee for a while, we can still support them with these services. After all, even the most diligent committees can become somewhat complacent over a long period of time. It is also important to consider how committee membership has changed over time, and whether or not new members have been able to perform their duties as effectively as previous members.

How ACT Supports JHSCs

Our health and safety experts will work with your organization’s committee and consult with them on many different aspects of operation. We will observe your committee implementation and look at the following:

  • Committee membership and requirements
  • Member role assignment
  • Meeting organization and conduct
  • Agenda setting and documentation
  • Meeting minutes documentation
  • Workplace inspections and audits
  • Hazard assessments and control measure recommendations
  • Accident Investigations and Reporting
  • Non-committee member training

Based on our observations, we will compile our feedback which will be discussed at an upcoming committee meeting. It will include actionable recommendations to improve the functionality of your Joint Health and Safety Committee and make sure they are working effectively towards making the workplace safer for all stakeholders. We will provide continued support as you implement these changes to ensure that they stick and actually improve the effectiveness of the committee.

Advanced Consulting and Training has been in the business of occupational health and safety training for over 20 years! We certify Joint Health and Safety committee members with our training courses and may have done so already with your organization’s committee members! Needless to say, we know what we’re doing when it comes to health and safety in the workplace, so have us help you further by supporting your committee and get it running as smoothly as possible! Contact us today to learn more about how we can help!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The very name Joint Health and Safety Committee implies that the committee is a joint effort, made up of managers and employees without management positions. This is to ensure that the JHSC is acting in the best interests of all employees, and giving a voice to the workers as well as management. This ensures that the safety of employees is a collaboration between the workers themselves and their employers.
A JHSC committee is responsible for the following:
  • Identifying potential hazards in the workplace
  • Inspecting the workplace on a regular basis
  • Obtaining information regarding health and safety information from the employer
  • Recommending health and safety improvements in the workplace
