Frequently Asked Questions

 

  • What is Joint Health & Safety Committee (JHSC) Certification?

    Provincial employers in Ontario employing 20 or more regularly employed workers must have a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) consisting of at least two certified members, one member representing workers and one representing management.

    Committees have a primary responsibility to work together with the employer, to work within the internal responsibility system (IRS) to identify hazards, and to make recommendations for improving worker safety. Our course teaches JHSC members about their roles and responsibilities and how to exercise them.

  • Were you certified under the 1996 JHSC standard?

    All paperwork for JHSC Part 1 and 2 must be submitted to the Ministry of Labour by April 30, 2016 to be certified for life under the 1996 training standard.

  • Did you take JHSC Part 1 under the 1996 standard and still need to take JHSC Part 2?

    There is no deadline for completing JHSC Part 2 under the new standard. However, once you successfully complete JHSC Part 2 under the new standard, you will be required to take refresher training every three years.
