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.
