Basic Committee Training – Labour Code (Non- Government)
This is an introductory course offered to union appointed committee members in the non-government sector. BCGEU Courses are also open to employer representatives. This course is a prerequisite for all other BCGEU OH&S courses. It is a must for new committee members and a refresher for those with experience.

In this course, you will learn:

  • 4 worker rights – Right to Know, Right to Participate, Right to Refuse Unsafe Work and Right to No Discrimination
  • Introduction to the Workers Compensation Act and Occupational Health and Safety Regulation
  • Roles and responsibilities of the employer, supervisor, workers and committees
  • Hazard identification and control measures
  • Introduction to workplace inspections and incident investigations
  • Committee structure, job description and committee evaluations

This course is limited to 22 seats so register early to avoid disappointment.

The BCGEU invites and encourages employer representatives to attend BCGEU OHS training courses. Please share this registration link with your employer and co-committee members.
