2.6 Joint Committee on Work Environment Issues

The Joint Committee on Work Environment Issues is the University’s safety committee. The Work Environment Act requires every workplace with more than fifty employees to have a safety committee. The Committee meets approximately six times per year for collaboration on University-wide work environment issues. It is a forum for collaboration, not a decision-making body of the University.
Current composition of the Committee:
Chair: Human Resources Director
Director of Building and Estate Services
Head Librarian
Deputy Chair of the Humanities and Social Sciences Disciplinary Domain Board
Deputy Chair of the Medicine and Pharmacy Disciplinary Domain Board
Deputy Chair of the Science and Technology Disciplinary Domain Board

Six members are selected by the University’s employees, one of whom is the chief safety representative. Three members are selected by the University’s students.
Secretary: Johanna Sandström, Administrative Coordinator
