What is Joint Health & Safety Committee Certification training?

Joint Health & Safety Committee Certification training is a mandatory training program that teaches members of the JHSC how to recognize, assess, and control hazards in the workplace. The program consists of two parts: Part 1 and Part 2. Part 1 provides members with a basic understanding of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and workplace hazards, while Part 2 provides more in-depth knowledge and skills related to hazard recognition and control.

Part 1 of the JHSC Certification training must be completed within six months of appointment to the committee, and Part 2 must be completed within one year of completing Part 1. The training must be provided by an approved training provider, and the certification is valid for three years.
