Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act (the Act) requires almost every provincially-regulated workplace with 20 or more employees or a designated substance on site to establish a JHSC.
Employers must also ensure at least two members of a JHSC, one representing workers and one representing the employer, become certified. To become certified, JHSC members must complete both Basic Certification Training (Part I) and Workplace-Specific Hazard Training (Part II).
There are many additional legal training obligations for employers beyond those for JHSC members.
Examples include: 
  • worker health and safety awareness
  • supervisor health and safety awareness
  • supervisor competency
  • violence and harassment
  • confined space entry
  • mobile equipment operator competency, and
  • working at heights.

The WHSC offers training to help workplaces comply with these and other training obligations required by workplace health and safety law. In fact, the WHSC is legally designated in Ontario as a training centre specializing in occupational health and safety.
The following are examples of upcoming legally-mandated training scheduled in communities across Ontario:
