WHSC 2014/15 Community Schedule Focused on Growing Training Obligations

WHSC 2014/15 Community Schedule Focused on Growing Training Obligations
The WHSC community-based training schedule is designed to assist employers seeking to comply with their extensive health and safety training obligations.

Ontario’s Occupational Health & Safety Act (the Act) for instance, requires employers to ensure at least two members of a JHSC, one representing workers and one representing the employer, become certified members. To become certified, JHSC members must complete both Basic Certification Training (Part I) and Workplace-Specific Hazard Training (Part II).

The WHSC continues to be a leading provider of JHSC Basic Certification Training (Part I) and Workplace Hazard-Specific Training or Certification Part II.

Employers have also been turning to the WHSC as they seek to comply with their newest obligation to ensure supervisors and workers complete health and safety awareness training. Ontario Regulation 297/13—Occupational Health and Safety Training and Awareness came into force on July 1, 2014.
WHSC community-based training 
To assist employers seeking to comply with these and other training obligations, the WHSC has scheduled courses across the province over the next 10 months. These include: 
* The WHSC Supervisor Training program helps employers to meet the new awareness obligation along with more extensive supervisor “competency” obligations [the Act, s. 25(2)(c)].
WHSC training in your workplace
With WHSC-qualified trainers located in communities across Ontario, training can also be delivered in the workplace. Onsite training allows you to coordinate delivery around your work schedule and eliminates the cost and time associated with traveling to off-site locations.
With continued program development initiatives and an existing training catalogue in excess of 200 hazard programs, the WHSC can help with most every training need.
