For joint health and safety committee members who became certified after March, 2016, new MOL-approved Certification Refresher Training
is now required for continued compliance.
Ontario health and safety law
requires this Refresher Training
be completed within three years
of completing Certification Part II
and every three years thereafter.
Employers and certified members of JHSCs should keep on top of training records
as those who don’t complete Refresher Training
before this three-year period expires will need to retrain in all three parts of Certification training
to regain certified status.
WHSC Certification is MOL-approved
Understanding many workplaces will want to get ahead of this deadline, the Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) has scheduled Refresher Training
in communities across Ontario for Friday, October 12. Be sure to register today to ensure access and maintain Certification status.
Like all Certification Training
, this refresher program must be delivered by an MOL-approved provider. The WHSC is an approved training provider
for Certification Part I, Part II and Refresher Training
Employers are required to carry out and pay for this training.
WHSC training ensures compliance and competence
WHSC’s one-day Certification Refresher Training
program revisits important concepts from Certification training, including specific duties and responsibilities for JHSC members, employers and other workplace parties as set out in the Occupational Health and Safety Act
In keeping with the hazard-based approach
to protecting workers which forms the basis of OHSA
, the WHSC program also explores the ineffectiveness of behaviour-based safety programs and why hazard elimination or exposure control is most effective in meeting legal obligations to protect workers.
The program further affords participants the opportunity to review new or amended health and safety laws, standards and guidelines along with highly relevant legal decisions, current or emerging issues, plus best practices for hazard elimination and control
