Rights to a Safe & Healthy Workplace

The Workplace Safety and Health Act supports every worker's right to a safe and healthy workplace. It assigns responsibility to each person in the workplace for creating and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace, to the extent that they have the authority and ability to do so. Everyone has a personal and shared responsibility to work together cooperatively to prevent workplace injuries and illness.

Everyone has a Responsibility

Workplace Safety and Health is everyone's responsibility... the employers, the supervisors and the employee.
The committees at UCN our comprised of members from various aspects of the workforce. Everyone working together to make the workplace safe for all.
Committees are required to meet a minimum of four times per year. Minutes of each meeting of the safety and health committee must be faxed, mailed or emailed to the Workplace Safety and Health Division.
The Workplace Safety & Health Committee meets to review safety and health concerns on the University College of the North campuses. If you have any issues which you wish to see raised at the next meeting please speak with your area/union representative. See the list of committee members below.
