Safety & Advisory Committees

UBC support both Safety & Advisory Committees.

Advisory Committees are comprised of knowledgeable, prominent and credible members of the community who provide the University with information, informed opinion, and advice in matters that promote safety in their specific field of expertise.

Safety Committees bring together representatives of the employer & workers to identify and support the employer’s duty to ensure health & safety issues in the workplace.
