Course Summary

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

Committees have a primary responsibility to identify hazards and bring them to the attention of the employer. Upon successful completion of our approved program, certified members will have the knowledge required to fulfill their legislated duties and support workplace parties in understanding their roles in preventing occupational injuries and illnesses as part of the internal responsibility system.

OSG is an Ontario Chief Prevention Officer Approved Training Provider for Joint Health and Safety Committee Certification Part 1.
