Employer training obligations

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).
Employers have many other general and specific legal duties to ensure workers and other workplace parties complete training. Examples include: 
  • working at heights (NEW)
  • worker health and safety awareness
  • supervisor health and safety awareness
  • supervisor competency
  • violence and harassment
  • confined space entry, and
  • mobile equipment operator competency.
