Employers with 5 or more workers at a work site are required to establish a joint work site health and safety committee or in some case a health and safety representative.

We provide support to employers who may not have the available internal resources to interpret the requirements and set up their health and safety committee, or to those want to bring in an independent company to support H&S culture change and reinforce the importance of compliance.

The initial stage Bow Valley Safety take in HSC development is a short meeting to better understand your requirements. This gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about HSC’s and about the act and legislation in general.

To book an initial HSC consultation or just ask some questions, call our team directly at 1 403 609 1413


Why is a Program Required?

All workers and employers are accountable for health and safety. HSCs and HS representatives form an important part of this internal responsibility system and further ensure that work site parties are aware of their roles and responsibilities in the workplace.

The prime contractor coordinates the establishment of an HSC or HS representative for the work site. If there is no prime contractor, all employers and self-employed persons are collectively responsible to ensure that the appropriate HSC or HS representative is established.
