Joint health and Safety COMMITtEE (JHSC) Training
Become a certified Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) member with our CPO-approved training. Available online in the virtual classroom. Become certified online with distance learning.
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 about 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.
You can take JHSC training online through distance learning. Check out upcoming dates.
