How To Become JHSC Certified

Step 1: Successfully Complete JHSC Part 1

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.


Provincial employers in Ontario employing 20 or more regularly employed workers must have a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) consisting of at least two certified members, one member representing workers and one representing management.

Committees have a primary responsibility to work together with the employer, to work within the internal responsibility system (IRS) to identify hazards, and to make recommendations for improving worker safety. Our course teaches JHSC members about their roles and responsibilities and how to exercise them.

Completion of OSG’s JHSC Certification Part 1 training program is the first step in becoming a Certified Member on your JHSC. OSG is an approved provider of JHSC Certification training by the Ministry of Labour.

October 1, 2015 - MOL Announces New Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) Certification 2014 Training Standard

On October 1st, the Ministry of Labour announced the new JHSC standard that will affect many workplaces in Ontario with more than 20 employees.

 

What are the changes?

The 1996 Certification Standards remain in effect until February 29, 2016 and the new standard begins on March 1, 2016.

 

The minimum hours for training are:

Part One training - three days (or 19.5 hours), used to be 2 days

Part Two training - two days (or 13 hours), used to be minimum 1.5 days

Refresher training - one day (or 6.5 hours), this is a new requirement

 

JHSC training can only be taken by an MOL approved training provider and must be taken within 6 months of each other.

 

What if I am certified before March 1st?

Certified JHSC members who completed both Part 1 and Part 2 training under the 1996 standard prior to March 1st will continue to be certified and will not be required to complete any further training under the new JHSC Certification Standards, including the Refresher training.  You are certified for life.  

 

What if I am not certified before March 1st?

Certified JHSC members who completed both Part 1 and Part 2 training under the new 2016 standard after March 1st will need to complete refresher training every 3 years.

 

What if I have completed Part 1 training before March 1st but not Part 2?

As of March 1st, JHSC members who have completed only Part 1 training under the 1996 standard will have to complete Part 2 training under the new 2016 standard in order to be certified, and will be required to take refresher training to maintain their certification.  Refresher training will need to be completed every 3 years.

 

How does this affect me?

The changes will result in 5 mandatory training days versus the minimum 3.5 days now.  This will increase your costs and in turn will have a loss of productivity.  As part of the new standard it will be mandatory to complete refresher training every 3 years.
