Joint health and Safety COMMITtEE  (JHSC) Training

Become a certified Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) member with our CPO-approved training. Available in classrooms across Ontario.

What is Joint Health and Safety Training?

This training gives employees and managers the opportunity to become a certified member of their organization's Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC). Participants will learn key health and safety principles so they're equipped with the knowledge required to contribute to a safe working environment.

For companies in Ontario with more than 20 workers, having a JHSC is a legal requirement under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. Not only do organizations need to have a committee, but the committee needs at least two members who have completed a CPO-approved JHSC certification course.  That's where our JHSC training comes in—any employee or manager can become certified by successfully completing Part I and Part II of our CPO-approved JHSC training.


How Do I Become Certified?

No previous training or experience is required. You can become certified in 3 simple steps!

Step 1: Successfully complete JHSC Part I, a 3-day in-person course

Step 2: Successfully complete JHSC Part II, a 2-day in-person course. Must be completed within six months of completing JHSC Part I

Step 3: Successfully complete JHSC Refresher Training every three years
