Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) Resource Centre

The new provincewide Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) Resource Centre will streamline Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee (JOHSC) work by making it easier to plan meetings, take notes, make recommendations, and take action with an accessible record of the work. More than 1,300 organizations, from health authorities and non-profit health organizations, representing more than 300,000 people working in healthcare will benefit from this initiative.

What’s Improving

Different systems throughout the province.
Access to one system for everyone working in healthcare in B.C.
Mix of paper and digital records and reports.
Digital resources and online platform available to all JOHSC members across B.C.
Varying degrees of access to information.
Information available to all staff online, 24/7


We are collaborating with key partners on this initiative including the Ministry of Health, WorkSafeBC, health authorities and healthcare unions (bargaining associations). Funding for this initiative was provided by the Nurses’ Bargaining Association and the Facilities’ Bargaining Association.
