Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC)?

Why does About Staffing have a JHSC?
The Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) brings together employers and employees to address health and safety-related concerns within the workplace.

How is my health and safety assured at About Staffing?

Through all this, we can assure your safety while at work.
