18109  Training

Your JHSC certification starts here. First learn the basics.

Certification is a two-step training process. Part One is the first step in training Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) members, providing them with a well-rounded understanding of health and safety fundamentals they can apply to their own workplace. Committee members become certified after completing BOTH Part One and Part Two training.

In 2015, the Ministry of Labour (MOL) released a NEW Joint Health and Safety Committee Certification Training Program Standard which took effect on March 1, 2016. Visit the Joint Health and Safety Committee, Certification Training Overview page for more information.

Description

This 3-day Part One course is based on the NEW Certification Training Program Standard and is perfect for JHSC members within the Agriculture industry. Participants will receive interactive, instructor-led classroom training that encourages learning and networking. Industry-specific examples, videos and case studies make learning even more relevant.

Whether you choose our generic 'All Sectors' or industry-specific Certification training, all options provide participants with a strong, consistent foundation in health and safety.

Prerequisite

Participants should have a solid understanding of English as they will be required to complete an in-class, written MOL certification evaluation.

The minimum requirement for JHSC Certification Part One training is three days (or 19.5 hours). All participants must meet the minimum training requirement to successfully complete the program. If portions of the program are missed, the participant will not be able to write the final evaluation and will be required to retake the training.
