New Ministry of Labour (MOL) training standards for Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) Certification training took effect on March 1, 2016 and Ontario companies with 20 or more employees are impacted.
Most companies in Ontario with 20 or more employees are required to have a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) that complies with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). For most, that means having at least 2 committee members – 1 worker and 1 management representative – certified in health and safety.
Certification status is awarded by the Ministry of Labour after completing BOTH Part One (basic) and Part Two (hazard-specific) training.
Part One is the first step in training JHSC members, providing them with a well-rounded understanding of health and safety fundamentals they can apply to their own workplace.
This includes health and safety and the law, and how to recognize and control hazards. Participants also learn about their roles and responsibilities, for example, in identifying hazards and making recommendations and in inspecting the workplace and investigating accidents.
Part-one training concludes with a Ministry of Labour (MOL)-developed test.
Part-one training and a solid grounding in health and safety prepares you for the Part One test, and sets the stage for Part-two.
Certification is about more than just compliance
It also makes good business sense. When committee members are well-trained, they’re not only better at identifying hazards and making recommendations for improvement, they’re also better at being health and safety leaders, at increasing overall employee engagement.
The result is higher productivity and less potential downtime from illness and injury.
