The Workers’ Compensation Act and Regulations, School Board Policy, and the Collective Agreement require that each district worksite have a Health and Safety Committee. These committees must include members of the STA, the CUPE, and the administration.
a) There should be no fewer than four regular members employed at the operation and experienced in the types of work carried on at the operation.
b) Membership should be chosen by and represent the workers and the employer. At least half the members must be worker representatives.
