University Health and Safety Committee
The University Health and Safety Committee (UHSC) is composed of twenty members with equal representation from management and various employee groups on campus.
In addition, a number of other university community members serve as technical resources to the UHSC.
The UHSC has a mandate to advise, assist and make recommendations on policy and procedures which will improve the health, safety and personal security of faculty, staff, students, and the general public while at the University.

The University Health and Safety Committee reports to the Vice President, Finance, Resources and Operations, and cooperates with:
- Risk Management Services; and
- the approximately 90 Local Safety Committees at UBC.
Current co-chairs of the UHSC are Barry Jones (union) and David Woodson (management).
