Report of the Health and Safety Committee

September 2007

Chris Aylward Item 11(e)

Our committee has not met since last Council.  Our National Health and Safety Conference took place the week end of August 24-26th.  According to the evaluation questionnaire, it was very well received and participants found it most informative and interesting.

The National Health and Safety Policy Committee met on September 7th.  Some of the topics discussed were:  Pandemic Planning; Job Hazard Analysis of Field Employees’ Jobs; Hazard Prevention Program Regulation, Policy Review, the Internal Ergonomics Program, etc.  We will share the minutes once available. 

I attended a meeting with the employer to discuss the concerns raised in a study made on the use of laser printers.  I have informed the locals of the discussion that took place at the meeting.

In solidarity,

Respectfully submitted,

Chris Aylward
Chairperson of the Committee
