Register today—a few spots remain for October JHSC Basic Cert Training
The WHSC’s Basic Certification program is an essential first step towards compliance with training obligations for joint health and safety committee (JHSC) members.
To assist workplaces seeking to comply with these obligations, the WHSC has scheduled Basic Certification Training this October in various communities across Ontario.  

What:  Basic Certification Training
When: Tuesday, October 7, 2014 thru Friday, October 10, 2014
Where: Barrie

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).
The WHSC is legally designated in Ontario as a training centre specializing in occupational health and safety. We can help workplaces meet many of their extensive training obligations including Basic Certification Training, Workplace-Specific Hazard Training and WHMIS.
The following are a few additional upcoming examples of training we’ve scheduled in communities across Ontario:
Workplace-Specific Hazard Training (Certification Part II)
Health Care & Social Services October 15-17
(see web for training locations and to register)
Office & Professional October. 21-23

WHMIS Review
