Occupational Health & Safety Training for New Committee Members and Worker Reps
This workshop is designed for new members of Joint Occupational Health
and Safety Committees in their first six months on a committee. Effective
April 3, 2017, Worksafe BC regulations require all new members of committees
and worker reps to receive 8 hours of instruction on prescribed health and
safety topics (OHSR 3.27) . This workshop satisfies that requirement. The
content of the workshop also serves as a good back-to-basics refresher for
committee people, or as a SURT.
Note: The training prescribed for new committee people is outside of the
8 hour education educational leave entitled under Part3, Division 4, Section
135 of the Workers’ Compensation Act.
