The committee on work health and safety is created to encourage worker participation in WHS policy making. It operates with the rationale that company executives and managers aren’t the only ones whose voice matters. The workers’ perspective is just as crucial in WHS consultation, especially as this immediately concerns their health and safety at work.
It’s essential that members of the WHS Committee, as well as other representatives with roles and responsibilities that are related to WHS, are appropriately trained in order to understand the hazards, risk that workers face on a daily basis. This is why we have developed committee training.
