What is a JHSC?
A Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) is comprised of worker and management representatives. The goal is to be mutually committed to enhancing health and safety in the workplace. The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires certification of at least two members of a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) for organizations with 20 or more employees.
