Report of the Health and Safety Committee

December 2020

Doug Gaetz

The next National Health Safety Policy Committee (NHSPC) will be held December 15, 2020. Since the start of the pandemic we have been holding the meetings by conference calls, I have requested that the December meeting be held virtually by Teams platform and the employer has agreed to this request.

We continue to hold “OSH chats” twice a week to discuss and address issues and concerns related to the pandemic.

The Workplace Violence working group, which I am a member of, continue to hold regular meetings using Teams to discuss the changes to workplace violence policy and procedures due to Bill C-65 which is expected to come into force January 1, 2021.

Please continue to be safe and practicing physical distancing and other preventative measures during the pandemic.

Respectfully submitted,

Doug Gaetz
Chair of the Committee
