WHS committees provide a forum for communication between the employer and the worker to address health and safety concerns in the workplace. They play an important role in developing the health and safety culture in the workplace and its members act as safety champions on behalf of the University. Since 2014 the Office of the Chief Risk Officer (OCRO) has conducted annual compliance audits to evaluate WHS committee activity and functionality. The average committee audit score has increased consistently from 60% in 2014 to 86% in 2016, with four committees achieving 100% in 2016. On May 10, these four committees plus the co-chairs of the other WHS committees will be recognized for their efforts during a reception.
