Report of the Health and Safety Committee

June 2021

Doug Gaetz

The next meeting for the National Health & Safety Policy Committee (NHSPC) meeting will be held June 22, 2021.

We just recently had a presentation given to the NHSPC members on the new Incident Reporting and Disability Management System (IRDMS), this will replace the T4009, Hazardous Occurrence Investigation Report.

It is expected to be rolled out in June 2021. Originally was going to be rolled out in April 2021, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other priorities it was delayed.

We are continuing the work on the “Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Program” and hope to have it finalized in the near future.

Meetings continue on a regular basis dealing with the pandemic and issues around this.

Please continue to follow health authority guidelines, washing hands, physical distancing and getting your vaccine, if able. Stay safe!!! 

Respectfully submitted,

Doug Gaetz
Chair of the Committee
