- Raise awareness among members that issues of workload, stress, discrimination, harassment and violence should be discussed and documented as occupational hazards.
- Support health and safety activists to bring issues such as workload to the joint committees for resolution.
- Ensure that all injuries and illnesses arising from new or emerging hazards, such as HIV/AIDS, are documented and dealt with by the joint committee.
