OSH Appointment Process Deadline

D-day is here!!


On November 30th the names of over 2800 designated Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) representatives will disappear from the BCGEU database. Locals should ensure their confirmed choices for new or reappointed OHS representatives are submitted to their area offices before this date. If OHS appointments are not completed for each worksite, OSH representatives will not have the ability to attend committee meetings or to qualify for OHS education and training. More importantly, the BCGEU’s ability to represent our members in the protection of their health and safety will be seriously impacted.


  • Previous OHS representatives, please contact your local chair immediately if you have not communicated your intention to be reappointed.
  • Members who are interested in becoming an OHS representative, please contact your local chair immediately to be considered for appointment.
  • Local chairs, if you have already completed your OHS appointment process thank you very much. If you have not completed the OHS appointment process, we urge you to give this your immediate attention.


If you have any questions or concerns or need help please contact your area office or the BCGEU OHS Department at [email protected].


Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to health and safety at the BCGEU.
