UNA Factoid #11: The Role of a UNA OH&S Committee

UNA Locals’ OH&S Committees strive to represent nurses in matters related to health and safety in their workplaces, monitor working conditions and practices to ensure safe and healthy workplaces, provide a formal process for recommendations to eliminate hazards and ensure compliance with legislation, plus provide a systematic way to solve problems and eliminate safety concerns of nurses.

Most UNA Collective Agreements include provisions that allow health and safety concerns not resolved by the OH&S Committee to be taken to a higher level of management.
