In order to become a certified member of the Joint Health & Safety Committee (JHSC), members must successfully complete Part II of the certification training within six months of completing Part I. Training on all of the hazards that may be found in a particular workplace is not required to become certified. However, an understanding of the recognition, assessment, control, and evaluation process in identifying hazards provides certified members with skills to apply their knowledge to contribute to the Internal Responsibility System (IRS) for a healthy and safe workplace.
OSG is an Ontario Chief Prevention Officer Approved Training Provider for the Joint Health and Safety Committee Certification Part 2 Training Program.
JHSC Certification is an outcome-based program. By the end of this course, participants must be able to:
- Describe key concepts from JHSC Part I
- Describe the process of hazard recognition, assessment, control, and evaluation
- Apply recognition, assessment, control, and evaluation principles to each hazard module
- Create a draft action plan and recommendations
