Anna Dequito No Comment

We’ve heard from many Joint OH&S Committee (JHSC) members about their successes and their challenges. This course has been designed to allow participants to evaluate their JHSC performance, and develop the tools, resources and strategies to build on their successes and to tackle the tough OH&S issues at their workplaces.

In this course participants will:

  • Indicate key elements of an eff ective JHSC committee.
  • Identify barriers facing a JHSC and develop practical strategies and solutions to deal with them.
  • Understand group dynamics and stages of group development.
  • Practice how to solve issues and understand the dispute resolution process.
  • Learn how to assess JHSC activities and create a written evaluation.
  • Learn how to develop short and long-term goals for the JHSC for making changes to improve health and safety.
