This committee helps support the safety program in the department by identifying hazards, raising safety issues, and conducting workplace inspections.

In addition to our Departmental Committee (also called Local Joint H&S Committee or LJHSC), the university has a Central Joint Health and Safety Committee.   These committees exist to represent your interests, and the interests of your colleagues.  If you have an issue you would like the committee to investigate, feel free to contact the committee chair.
