DBAI works with
organizations who believe that streamlining their Health and Safety
Program ensures a consistent message to all of their employees and ensures that they
either meet or exceed Health and Safety Guidelines across Canada.
This resource book was developed to assist
Health and Safety Committees in all provinces to:
their responsibilities and advise on hazard evaluations and controls in the
workplace inspections, and participate in accident investigations
to work refusals
as an integral part of the internal responsibility system to ensure a safe and
National organizations must ensure that each Health and Safety Committee
member must have access to and knowledge of the Health and Safety Legislation in
their province to ensure that they are meeting their specific requirements.
This resource identifies links to this and other provincial websites.
DBAI recognizes that all provincial legislation is not the same but also
considers legislation to be the minimum standard in maintaining safe and healthy
workplaces. In some cases, this guide will set a standard that may exceed a
particular provincial standard. We believe that it is better for national
organizations to have a consistent, effective program across Canada, than to
have programs that differ, province to province. This resource is not intended
to provide legal advice but is a guide to understanding the duties and
responsibilities of Health and Safety Committee members.
