Are you in compliance with your Basic Health & Safety Requirement - JHSC?

The Occupational Health & Safety Act (OHSA) requires workplaces with 20 or more employees to have a Joint Health & Safety Committee (JHSC) that operates in accordance with the requirements defined in the OHSA. Organizations with multiple locations may require multiple committees since the requirement is defined based on the workplace and not the employer/organization. For each JHSC, at a minimum, two members (one worker and one member of management must be certified through an approved health & safety provider.
