The Government of Canada is committed to appointing highly qualified candidates to serve the interests of Canadians on commissions, boards, Crown corporations, agencies, and tribunals across the country.
Today, the Minister of Labour, Filomena Tassi, announced the reappointment of Joseph Bajzath and the appointments of Rodney Cook and Tim Petersen to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) Council of Governors. The tripartite Council, which represents governments (federal, provincial and territorial), employers, and labour, assists in delivering a trustworthy and complete occupational health and safety service, and ensures a balanced approach to workplace health and safety issues.
Established in 1978 by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety Act, the CCOHS aims to promote the well-being of working Canadians by providing information, training, education, management systems and solutions that support health, safety and wellness programs. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCOHS has developed a series of tools and resources, such as pandemic guidance tip sheets, and made them available for free on their website to support industries, employers and workers across the country.
