Provincial Safety and Health Regulations

In Canada, employers are required to establish Joint Health and Safety Committees in their workplaces. A joint health and safety committee (JHSC) is a forum for bringing the internal responsibility system into practice. The committee consists of labour and management representatives who meet on a regular basis to deal with health and safety issues. Employers are responsible for establishing workplace health and safety committees. Most Canadian health and safety legislation set guidelines for organizing the committee, the structure of the committee, meeting frequency, and the roles and responsibilities of committee members. Provincial requirements follow, and for more information, please contact SGIA’s Government & Business Information Department at
