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 train workers and other workplace parties. 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 meet all of these requirements and much more. In fact, the WHSC is legally designated in Ontario as a training centre specializing in occupational health and safety.
