Health & Safety Committees

There are two levels of Safety Committees at UBC:

The University Health and Safety Committee (UHSC)
UBC has a joint central safety committee called the University Health and Safety Committee (UHSC). Its role is to review and promote health and safety activities across the University and to make recommendations for continuous improvement.

Local Health and Safety Committees
All departments in the University are required to have a local Health and Safety Committee. These committees monitor the safety programs within their areas and make recommendations to improve health, safety and environmental performance.
