Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee Guide

This guide is for CUPE members on Joint Occupational Health and Safety (JOSH) Committees. This document will detail the tools available to you as a committee member and provide some suggestions on how those tools can best be used to effect positive change in your workplace, to improve the health and safety of all of our brothers and sisters in the workplace, and to ensure your employer is meeting their legal obligations. We want to prevent the terrible, catastrophic, events that can lead to serious injury or death. We also must not lose sight of the potential consequences of less immediate or severe conditions that can nonetheless compromise a worker’s quality of life.
