Joint Health & Safety Committee Certification Part 2 (JHSC II) *MOL Approved - 2 Days



How To Become JHSC Certified

Step 1: Successfully Complete JHSC Part 1

Step 2: Successfully complete JHSC Part 2 within six months of completing JHSC Part 1

Step 3: Successfully complete JHSC refresher training every three years

Were you certified under the 1996 standard?

All paperwork for JHSC Part 1 and 2 must be submitted to the Ministry of Labour by April 30, 2016 to be certified for life under the 1996 training standard.

Did you take JHSC Part 1 under the 1996 standard and still need to take JHSC Part 2?

There is no deadline for completing JHSC Part 2 under the new standard. However, once you successfully complete JHSC Part 2 under the new standard, you will be required to take refresher training every three years.

OSG’s JHSC Part II program completes the training necessary to become a Certified Member of a Joint Health & Safety Committee.  Through interactive exercises, case studies and group discussion participants will learn how to apply the concepts of hazard recognition, assessment and control, and evaluation of hazard controls otherwise known as the RACE methodology.

Our JHSC Part II program consists of 6 modules.  These modules are hazards that are found in every workplace, no matter what industry you are in. 

Participants should bring with them the Occupational Health and Safety Act & Regulations provided in the JHSC Part I Course.


By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

• Identify why each topic is considered a hazard

• Identify applicable legislation

• Assess the potential, and the severity, of the hazards

• Create a plan for controlling the hazard
