    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. The statement is incorrect because the number of members on a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the size of the workplace. While some jurisdictions may require a minimum of four members, others may have different requirements. Therefore, it is not always the case that there are four members on a JHSC.

    True or False? There must be equal employer-employee representation on a JHSC.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC), it is important to have equal representation from both the employer and employees. This ensures that both parties have a voice in identifying and resolving workplace health and safety issues. By having equal representation, it promotes collaboration, communication, and accountability in creating a safe and healthy work environment. It also allows for a balanced perspective, as both employers and employees bring different experiences and knowledge to the committee. Therefore, the statement "There must be equal employer-employee representation on a JHSC" is true.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. The statement "JHSC meetings are held quarterly" is incorrect. JHSC (Joint Health and Safety Committee) meetings are not held quarterly, but rather they are typically held more frequently, such as monthly or bi-monthly. These meetings are important for discussing and addressing workplace health and safety issues, and having them more often allows for timely action and resolution of any concerns.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Health & Safety Officers may not chair meetings of the JHSC. The Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) is typically chaired by worker and management representatives, who are selected by their respective groups. The role of the Health & Safety Officer is to provide guidance and support to the JHSC, but they do not have the authority to chair the meetings.

    True or False? The names of committee members are prominently posted.

    • A.

      True

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the names of committee members are prominently displayed. This means that the names are easily visible and accessible to the public. This could be important for transparency and accountability purposes, allowing individuals to know who is involved in decision-making processes and who to contact for further information or concerns.
