Carleton’s Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) is made up of employer and worker representatives from different areas of the Carleton community. Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (Section 9), the JHSC’s role consists of:

  • Identifying potential health and safety hazards in the workplace;
  • conducting physical workplace inspections;
  • holding regular meetings;
  • raising awareness of health and safety issues in the workplace;
  • and providing recommendations to the employer to mitigate risks associated with identified hazards.

For more information on the JHSC’s role in a healthy and safe workplace, consult the committee’s Terms of Reference.

Should you have any questions about the JHSC, are interested in joining the committee or have safety concerns that you wish to discuss, please feel free to contact us at ehs@carleton.ca or contact any committee member directly.

Meetings

The JHSC meets several times a year to discuss health and safety issues, resolutions and areas of improvement. The committee also discusses awareness of health and safety in the workplace and opportunities for community engagement.

Inspections

As Carleton’s campus consists of many different buildings, inspections are distributed in such a way that every space is inspected annually. At least one member of the JHSC will conduct the inspection, often with the help of building occupants. Afterwards, inspection reports are posted online and building authorities are notified of required actions. The complete workplace inspection process can be found here.

A report template is provided as well as inspection checklists for the various types of workplaces encountered at Carleton University.
