Revealed: Four crucial health and safety committee obligations

by , 28 August 2013
If you have two or more health and safety representatives, you need to form a health and safety committee. This is just one of your health and safety committee obligations outlines in the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). Read on to find out what your other duties are so you can comply...

Your health and safety committee needs to operate effectively so that it can fulfil its legal responsibilities, says the Health&Safety Advisor.

It's for this reason that the OHSA requires you to adhere to these four health and safety committee obligations.

Four health and safety committee duties you must stick to

#1: You need to appoint your health and safety representatives and your employer representatives in writing.

Remember, it's your job to ensure employees appoint a health and safety representative no more than four months after the commencement of the business.

#2: Your health and safety committee must meet as often as necessary, but not less than once every three months.

#3: At every meeting of the health and safety committee, consult with the committee on initiating, developing, promoting, maintaining and reviewing measures to ensure the health and safety of your employees.

#4: You must keep records of Health and Safety Committee meetings for at least three years.

Now that you know your health and safety committee obligations, make sure you stick to them to comply with the OHSA.
