Health, Safety and Environment Committees

JCU has a number of consultative mechanisms for health, safety and environment, including a framework of committees and elected Health and Safety Representatives.

A new committee structure was established in 2014 to replace the former Health and Safety Committee (HSC) framework and structure consisting of level 1, 2 and 3 HSCs, which were disestablished.

As part of the new committee structure, each Division formed a Health, Safety and Environment committee with agreed terms of reference, membership and business schedules.

JCU’s Health, Safety and Environment Committees play an integral role in promoting safe working practices and environments by facilitating cooperation between management and staff in the development, review and resolution of health and safety issues, and in developing and carrying out measures to ensure health and safety at JCU.

For further information, please see the JCU Policy and Procedures for Health, Safety and Environment.
