Certification is a two-step training process. Part One is the first step in training Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) members, providing them with a well-rounded understanding of health and safety fundamentals they can apply to their own workplace. Committee members become certified after completing BOTH Part One and Part Two training.
This training meets the learning objectives outlined in the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development (MLITSD) JHSC Certification Training Program Standard, which took effect on March 1, 2016.
