New Ministry of Labour (MOL) training standards for Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) Certification take 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 two committee members – 1 worker and 1 management representative – certified in health and safety.

Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS) is the first training provider to receive MOL approval for Both Part One and Part Two JHSC Certification Training under the new standards.

Starting March 1, 2016, WSPS is offering certification training under the new standards in classrooms across Ontario. Flexible on-site sessions at your workplace are also available.
