University Health and Safety Committee (UHSC)

Introduction

The University Health and Safety Committee (UHSC) of McGill University was established in 2003 and replaces the Central Safety Committee which was founded in 1973. As its title implies, the UHSC is an advisory body and is jointly comprised of individuals representing employee and student groups and responsible parties from academic and administrative units. This Committee is not, at present, required by legislated standards, and thus has the flexibility of having a broad mandate and one that is designed to address the specific needs of the University.

On September 29, 2008, the Committee changed its name to the University Health and Safety Committee.
