Employer training obligations

Ontario health and safety law requires employers to ensure at least two members of a joint health and safety committee (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.
