Report of the Health and Safety Committee

March 2007

Chris Aylward Item 11(e)

The committee held the first regional Health and Safety conference in Montreal from February 23rd to the 25th; fifty six (56) participants attended.  The theme of the conference is “Back to the Basics – a Practical Approach".  Participants appreciated the hands on approach to problem solving and reference tools available to be an effective committee member.

Our committee met on February 26th to start the planning of the national conference to be held at the end of August.  A tentative agenda was prepared.

The National Health and Safety Policy committee met on March 1st, the minutes will be forwarded to the locals once available. The minutes of the November 2006 meeting are now available on the UTE Web site.

Respectfully submitted,

Chris Aylward
Chairperson of the Committee
