This Special Report is intended to help organizations assess the current effectiveness of their Joint Health and Safety Committees (JHSCs) and provide guidelines and tools to facilitate movement from one stage of the continuum to the next. It has a special focus on developing training programs for JHSC members. The book outlines the skills and knowledge required by JHSCs for basic legal compliance as well as due diligence. It also highlights the need for going further than basic legal compliance, considering the degree of integration with the internal responsibility system and the need for effectiveness training. The book also includes practical tools and guidelines you can use and incorporate into your own organization.
