Safety Committees

In order to enhance our safety culture, UBC is redesigning our University Health & Safety Committee (UHSC). The Vancouver campus is transitioning from one large UHSC — which covers the entire campus — to a smaller cluster of Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committees (JOHSC), which are accountable directly to their Vice President’s portfolio. This transition is currently underway and should be fully implemented by November 1, 2017. Please see the new UBC Safety Committee Website.

Advisory Committees

Comprised of experts in the community who provide advice in matters that promote safety.

University Health & Safety Committee

The last meeting of the University Health & Safety Committee (UHSC) was on March 28, 2018. The University has formed a new Joint Occupational Health & Safety Committee structure. A new University Admin JOHSC will begin in May 2018 covering mostly office based work areas.
