Back in March of 2016 the Ministry of Labour (MOL) introduced new legislation for the Joint Health & Safety Committee certification
course. They standardized the learning material, learning outcomes and course presentation and increased the duration from 3 or 4 days, depending on your industry, to 5 days for all industries, three days for Part 1 Basic and two days for Part 2 Workplace Specific. The MOL also introduced a mandatory JHSC 1 Day Refresher training class
for those that complete the program after March 1, 2016. This refresher training is required to be completed every 3 years for those that completed the JHSC program after March 1, 2016. Anyone who completed the JHSC training under the old standards, prior to March 1, 2016 was grandfathered in and their certification will never expire, they are not required to complete the JHSC 1 Day Refresher course in order to maintain their certification.
