Health and Safety Committee
REPORT OF THE SAFETY & HEALTH COMMITTEE
Chris Aylward Item 11(e)
Our committee has not met since last Council but will be meeting in the
near future to start planning the regional and national conferences.
The National Health and Safety Policy Committee met on February 23rd and
the minutes will be sent to all the locals in early April. The next
meeting is scheduled for May 25th.
As an effort to increase awareness and training in health and safety,
we are working jointly with the employer on the following projects:
- An information pamphlet for all employees to be available this year.
- Training package for managers in under review and sessions should start
by the Fall.
- The revision of the Workplace Health and Safety Committee member course
is completed and is now being reviewed by Training and Learning. The
final package should be available by fall 2006.
- Protected footwear.
The Hazard Prevention Program Regulations (CLC Part II) took effect on
December 14, 2005. There will be a presentation at the Presidents’ conference
to explain the key components of this new regulation.
