Health and Safety

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​BCNU's Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) department works with members and stewards to make workplaces safe. We lobby employers to implement comprehensive, evidence-based health and safety programs.  Our priority is your health and safety. 

​If you have experienced a workplace ​incident, it is critical that you report it to the Provincial Call Centre, at 1-866-922-9464, even if there is no injury or immediate illness.  The Employer has a legislated responsibility to investigate every incident that is reported to this number. 

We have a number of specialized teams here to support you when you need it. Click on the links below to learn more about what they do, and how they can help you.​

Joint Occupational Health and Safety (JOHS) Committees conduct investigations, ins​pections, draft 21-day recommendation letters, and provide education to members.​​ ​
