Health and Safety Consultation Committee (HSCC)

The Head of School (HoS) has ultimate responsibility for work health and safety in BEES.  The HoS is assisted in this regard by the Health and Safety Manager and the HSCC.

The BEES HSCC constitution is available here. This document was last modified 7th of April 2016.

The BEES HSCC consists of the Head of School (or representative), HS Manager and the HS Representatives (elected or appointed members from the BEES work groups).  Elections for HS Representatives are held every three years (next election scheduled for February 2018), and there is no limit to the number of terms an individual member of the committee may serve.

Formal meetings are held four to six times per year. If you wish to have an issue discussed at a meeting, please raise the issue with your HS Representative (see contact list below) or contact the Chairperson or the Secretary.
