Government is committed to the health and safety of all employees, as well as clients, and members of the general public who may come in contact with a government work site.
The Public Service Commission (PSC) has two roles when it comes to occupational health and safety. The first is to take responsibility for the health and safety of the employees within the PSC itself. This is the same responsibility as any government department has for its employees - meaning we set out a PSC departmental health and safety program and co-operate with the joint occupational health and safety committees and representatives.
Secondly, we have the responsibility to monitor and oversee all other government departments to ensure they are meeting the needs and requirements of the OHS Corporate Policy and Act. We fulfill this responsibility to other departments by providing strategic leadership and support.
