Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee JOHSC

Under the Ontario Health and Safety Act, there must be a JOHSC.  Each of the seven OSSTF Bargaining Uits has a representative on this committee.  It meets monthly to review incidents and make recommendations to the Board.

Remember ALL workplace accidents, violent incidents and exposure to hazardous materials must be reported. The Forms are online. Principals and site supervisors have access. If a member is not able to access the OCDSB online version, then it is recommended a paper copy be completed (forms below). If you are unsure, contact your Bargaining Unit Representative or Executive.
