Yes! JHSC Training is Happening in Stoney Creek

Updated: Sep 27, 2023


Where: Stoney Creek

When: Part 1 sessions will be offered on October 23-24-25. Part 2 sessions will follow on October 26-27. These are 8-hour classes that lead to full OML certification.


Getting your JHSC Certification and keeping it current is important, but the benefits of completing your training go far beyond meeting OHSA requirements. When your health and safety committee members are trained, they are able to recognize and control hazards, make recommendations for improvements, and help to prevent injuries and illnesses. JHSC Certification training prepares your committee members to be better health and safety leaders, resulting in higher productivity and less potential downtime from illness and injury. Provincial employers in Ontario employing 20 or more regularly employed workers must have a Joint Health and Safety Committee in place. By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain their role as a certified member

  • Explain the roles of workplace parties

  • Identify health and safety legislation, and demonstrate how to access it

  • Explain basic rights, responsibilities, and training requirements

  • Describe the purpose, legal requirements for, and rights and duties of the JHSC and its members

  • Describe how a functioning JHSC works

  • Describe the basic process of recognizing, assessing, controlling, and evaluating hazards

  • Explain hazard recognition and the process of workplace inspections

  • Describe methods of hazard assessment, control, and evaluation

  • Practice recognizing, assessing, controlling, and evaluating hazard controls

  • State the requirements for investigating accidents
