Internal Responsibility System IRS

The Internal Responsibility System is a philosophy that establishes an employer - employee relationship to prevent injury, harm or environmental damage in the workplace.  A proactive approach to identifying and correcting hazards is essential to establish "due diligence".  The three main parties involved in the IRS are:

  • Employer;
  • Workers; and 
  • Joint Occupational Health & Safety Committee JOHSC

Working together workplace injuries, disease and harm can be prevented.
