Safety Committees at UBC
UBC provides a safe workplace for all employees, students, and visitors. In order to enhance our safety culture, UBC is redesigning our University Health & Safety Committee (UHSC). The Vancouver campus is transitioning from one large UHSC — which covers the entire campus — to a smaller cluster of Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committees (JOHSC), which are accountable directly to their Vice President’s portfolio. WorkSafeBC supports this variation. that will place greater accountability directly within each VP portfolio. The transition will be fully implemented by November 1, 2017.
