OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY TRAINING & PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT
Joint Health and Safety Committee Certification
In Ontario, most workplaces with 20 or more workers must have a joint health and safety committee (JHSC), made up of at least one worker and one employer member. The committee’s primary role is to identify workplace health and safety issues and bring them to the attention of the employer. JHSC members who successfully complete all parts of an approved training program are eligible to be certified by the Chief Prevention Officer.
JHSC Part 1
Part One is the first step in training JHSC members, providing them with a well-rounded understanding of health and safety fundamentals they can apply to their own workplace.
This includes health and safety and the law, and how to recognize and control hazards. Members also learn about their roles and responsibilities, for example, in identifying hazards and making recommendations and in inspecting the workplace and investigating accidents.
Part One training concludes with a MOL developed test.
You can be certain that with all our Part One options, you receive thorough training and a solid grounding in health and safety that prepares you for the Part One test, and sets the stage for Part Two.
JHSC Part 2
Part Two can begin as soon as you finish Part One. You can even register for both courses at the same time – you don’t have to wait for your Part One test results from the MOL. In fact, we’ve found when taking both parts close together, the information stays fresh and learning is even more effective.
In general, your joint health and safety certification is valid for 3 years after the successful completion of an approved JHSC Part 2 training program.
After 3 years, you must successfully complete a refresher program to keep your certification valid.
To be eligible for refresher training, workers must have successfully completed both parts of an approved JHSC certification program.
