The Effectiveness of Joint Health and Safety Committees: A Systematic Review

For this project, the research team set out to conduct a systematic review to determine the factors that aid and impede the effective functioning of Joint Health and Safety Committees (JHSC), and to identify gaps in knowledge in this area. They also held a forum with experts in the field to better understand how to meet the needs of JHSC training. The researchers found that worker empowerment and involvement in the promotion of health and safety is a determinant of lower injury rates. The researchers concluded that it is key for JHSCs to have a clear mandate, and that committee members require appropriate education to successfully carry out their work.
