In order to enhance our safety culture, UBC is redesigning our University Health and Safety Committee (UHSC). Starting in April, Risk Management Services (RMS) will begin the transition across UBC, completing on November 1, 2017.
Through this program, RMS will be helping the Vancouver campus move from one large UHSC—which covers the entire campus and its diverse employee groups—to a cluster of smaller Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committees (JOHSC), which will cover each employee group within a single VP’s portfolio. Each JOHSC will report their safety recommendations up through revised structures under one of our VPs.
