Course Description Icon About Part One Training

Joint Health and Safety Certification Training is mandated under the Occupation Health and Safety Act, and is therefore necessary for Ontario workplaces with 20 or more workers where a joint health and safety committee is required. Legislation mandates that there must be at least one certified worker member and one certified management member on the committee. Consequently, this means that the majority of provincially regulated workplaces will need to have two person complete Certification Training.

Since certified members play a crucial part in workplace health and safety culture, it is extremely important that they enter their roles feeling prepared and knowing what to expect. Our Part One JHSC Certification Training course equips learners with the knowledge and resources to effectively fulfill their roles as certified members of a workplace joint health and safety committee.

JHSC Certification Training Part One is an engaging and interactive 3-day course which is approved by Chief Prevention Officer. Completion of both Parts One and Two are necessary in order to be eligible for certification. Successful participants of this program will have completed the first mandatory component of certification training, and will be eligible to become certified members upon completion of Part Two Training.

Course Description Icon About Part Two Training

JHSC Certification Training Part Two is a two-day course which fulfills the second component of the requirement for certification training. Since Part Two Training builds on concepts gained in Part One of the certification training process, Participants should have already completed Part One before registering for Part Two.

Our public Part Two training course is primarily designed for workplaces that provide general management or administrative support services (please see the list of hazards we will consider under Key Concepts). Learners will gain the knowledge and resources to identify, assess, and control the workplace hazards under consideration.
