BVTU Health and Safety Representatives


School health and safety representatives are the person to talk to about any workplace health and safety concerns.


Jamie Burns is the BVTU Health and Safety representative on the District Health and Safety Committee. 


It is noteworthy that having a school-based health and safety representative is mandated by law. The district will choose someone to fill this position if there isn't a volunteer. 

This WorkSafe BC resource provides more information on health and safety reps. As per your availability and capacity, please consider at some point stepping up and helping keep our workplaces and our people safe. 


There are a variety of health and safety workshops available.

Funding is available for release time for training. Contact your local president if interested!
