The Local Health, Safety and Environment Committee at the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology
Health and safety committees are advisory bodies to the employer at the faculty. The health and safety committees consist of representatives of the employer and the employees who meet to discuss overarching work environment issues, including planning, execution and follow-up of systematic work environment management at the faculty.
The Local Health, Safety and Environment Committee consists of the Faculty Boards Working Committee as well as three union representatives, including the faculties' principal health and safety representative, one Head of Department, a student health and safety representative and the Vice president (Head of Student Welfare Matters) of the student union for Humanities and Theology (HTS). Dean for the Humanities and Theology is the chair of the committee.
Besides the members of the committee, the faculties' Work Environment Coordinator, a representative for the Occupational Health Service and the Head of the Maintenance unit at the faculties are invited to the committee's meetings on a regular basis.
