Certification, mandatory and essential

Employers have the greatest legal responsibility for the protection of workers. Though Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) also recognizes the rights and obligations of others to play an important role in pursuit of prevention, namely joint health and safety committee (JHSC) members and worker health and safety representatives. 
If your workplace employs 20 or more workers or a designated substance is onsite, the OHSA requires the establishment of a JHSC. In this case, employers must also "carry out" approved Certification training for at least two members of the JHSC, one worker representative and one management representative, including Certification Part ICertification Part II and Certification Refresher

Though, many workplaces elect to train all JHSC members adding to their in-house capacity to address the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and to ensure the many other workplace hazards aren’t overlooked. In smaller workplaces where worker health and safety representatives are mandated, some employers recognize the utility of this training and ensure they complete it too.

Additional essential training scheduled

Health and safety law also requires employers to meet additional training requirements. In support, WHSC has also scheduled the following required or essential programs also scheduled in virtual classrooms n the coming weeks and months:

✅ Ergonomics and MSDs
✅ Indoor Air­
✅ Globally Harmonized WHMIS
✅ Psychosocial Hazards and Workplace Mental Health
