Joint Committee

The Joint Committee on Health, Safety and Environment (JCHSE) was created in 1992, consolidating all occupational safety and health related activities and compliance efforts of the Johns Hopkins Hospital and University.

The rationale for the consolidation was that Hospital and University employees work side-by-side and are exposed to common environmental hazards. 

A single entity oversees the health and safety of these employees and the development of common policies and procedures used to protect them. 

The Joint Committee and Department is lead by Edward Bernacki, M.D., M.P.H., associate professor of medicine, director of the Division of Occupational Medicine and executive director of Health, Safety and Environment, of the Johns Hopkins University and Hospital.
