POLICY 4300

DISTRICT HEALTH AND SAFETY COMMITTEE

The Board of Education believes that the workplace should be a healthy and safe environment. To achieve this, a District Health and Safety Committee will be established and will be maintained to reduce workplace injury and occupational disease.

While the Site-based Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committees are the committees required by the Workers Compensation Act and Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, it is recognized that the District Health and Safety Committee can fulfill an important role as well. The District Health and Safety Committee will act solely in an advisory capacity making recommendations to the employer on health and safety topics aimed at establishing a safe and healthy working environment.
