Joint Occupational Health & Safety Committee

The Joint Occupational Health & Safety Committee (JOHSC) is an advisory committee to the President's Executive Committee (PEC).

Mandated by Alberta Occupational Health & Safety legislation, the JOHSC brings together representatives from all levels of the University to discuss and address health and safety-related concerns at MRU. The JOHSC allows workers to participate in occupational health and safety and supports their three basic rights: 

  • The right to know
  • The right to participate
  • The right to refuse dangerous work

Concerns may be brought directly to a member of the JOHSC or communicated to EH&S to pass along: EHS@mtroyal.ca. Additional information on the MRU JOHSC can be found in the Terms of Reference.

The Government of Alberta provides a summary of the requirements and responsibilities of worksite health and safety committees on their website and through a 30-minute webinar.
