Report of the Health and Safety Committee

March 2004

Chris Aylward Item 11(e)

Our committee met on December 3rd to discuss and plan the National Health and Safety Conference to be held at the end of May. A summary of the meeting is attached. We now have an agenda for the conference and the input call bulletin and registration forms will be sent out electronically shortly and a hard copy will be in the Presidents’ kits. UTE will pay for one member from each Health and Safety Workplace committee.

The regional vice-presidents will play an important role at the conference by facilitating a regional health and safety caucus and reporting in plenary. Guidelines for discussion will be provided.

We also organized to have a presentation on Environmental Sensitivities and Air Quality at the Presidents’ conference.

Approximately 35 UTE members attended the PSAC conference held last week- end.

A meeting of the National Health and Safety Policy committee is tentatively scheduled for April 7th.

Respectfully submitted,

Chris Aylward
Chairperson of the Committee
