(Conversation between an airplane and an helicopter)
Airplane: Max, what is a safety and health committee?
Helicopter: Well, it is a group that represents employees' safety and health concerns in the workplace.
Airplane: You mean such things as inadequate equipment, a first aid kit missing required items, a defective trolley on board aircraft should be reported to the committee?
Helicopter: Yes, but first one should discuss this with the supervisor. If there is still a concern, then the Safety and Health Committee or representative should be advised.
Airplane: I don't understand! What is a Safety and Health Representative?
Helicopter: Don't be confused! The main point is that both the committee and the representative are there to help the employer and the employee work together in addressing OSH concerns.
Airplane: That's great! Where can I find out more about the occupational safety and health committee and representatives?
Helicopter: Speak to your supervisor or to your OSH committee member or representative. Or you may consult the Transport Canada - Aviation OSH website at: http://www.tc.gc.ca/aviation/osh-sst
Airplane: Thanks a lot, Max!
