REA 2-Day Course
Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) Member Part II Certification - Office Environment
Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) Approved Certification Training Courses
Certification Training educates worker and management members of a joint health and safety committee (JHSC) in fundamental occupational health and safety concepts, to help JHSCs more effectively perform their legislated roles and functions. JHSCs are required in Ontario workplaces covered by the Occupational Health and Safety Act where 20 or more workers are employed. The Act also requires that one worker and one management member from each JHSC be certified. The Chief Prevention Officer of the Ministry of Labour is responsible for setting standards for certification and certifying JHSC members against those standards. REA is a Chief Prevention Officer Approved Provider of JHSC Certification Training.
How Certification is Achieved
The Joint Health and Safety Committee Member Certification is a 2-step process requiring completion of Part 1 (Basic) and Part 2 (Workplace-Specific or Sector-Specific Hazard Training). Employers of participants seeking Part 2 Certification are expected to conduct a hazard assessment to determine the “significant hazards” present at their workplace and ensure that prospective certified members receive training in those hazards. Upon completion of training, participants must submit a completed copy of the Workplace-Specific Hazard Training Confirmation Form to Chief Prevention Officer for final certification. See more on REA's Part 2 Certification Course (Office Environment, Industrial Environment, Health Care Environment).
Part II of Ontario Ministry of Labour’s Joint Health and Safety Committee Member Certification Standard requires JHSC members in an office environment to have an understanding of the hazards commonly encountered in that setting.
