Employer training obligations
Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety 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
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
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.
