Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act requires every provincially-regulated workplace with 20 or more employees or a designated substance on site to establish a joint health and safety committee (JHSC). Employers must ensure at least two members of the JHSC, one representing workers and one representing the employer, become certified members. 
Certification is based on a four-part process including completion of two training programs approved by Ontario’s Chief Prevention Officer.

This process includes:
  1. Basic Certification Training (Part I)
  2. Workplace Hazard Assessment
  3. Workplace-Specific Hazard Training (Certification Part II)
  4. Submission of Workplace-Specific Hazard Training Confirmation to MOL.

The Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) is an approved provider of both Basic Certification Training and Workplace-Specific Hazard Training. Upon request, the WHSC will also assist workplaces with their Workplace Hazard Assessment.
To further help workplaces meet their extensive training obligations the WHSC has scheduled Basic Certification Training, Certification Part II and a range of other training programs in more than 20 Ontario communities between now and June 2014. The following are just a few upcoming examples:
