Joint Health & Safety Committee (JHSC): Part 1 – Basic Certification – CPO Approved program
Ontario’s Occupational Health & Safety Act (OHSA) requires all workplaces with 20 or more regularly employed workers to have a Joint Health & Safety Committee.
Two of these committee members must be certified (one management representative and one worker representative) as per the
Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development (MLITSD). Certification requires completion of both Part I (Basic) and Part II (WPS) Certification Training for Joint Health & Safety Committee members.
JHSC Part I Basic Certification is a 3-day program that outlines all aspects of being a Certified Member in a Joint Health and Safety Committee. After completing this program, you will be equipped with the tools you need to become an effective member of your workplace JHSC.
