Employer JHSC Certification Training obligations

Ontario health and safety law requires employers to ensure at least two members of a JHSC, one representing workers and one management, become certified. To become certified, JHSC members must complete both Basic Certification Training (Part I) and Workplace-Specific Hazard Training (Part II). 
 
Ontario employers have many other health and safety training obligations including: 
  • working at heights
  • worker awareness
  • supervisor awareness and competency
  • WHMIS and Globally-harmonized WHMIS
  • violence and harassment
  • confined space entry, and
  • mobile equipment operator competency.
