Joint Health and Safety Committee training (JHSC certification training) is a mandatory requirement in Ontario for employers with 20 or more workers. Learn more about JHSC eLearning, the safest & easiest way to become a certified member.
In Ontario, workplaces with 20 or more workers are required by law to have a joint health and safety committee.
The JHSC must include at least one (1) worker and one (1) manager. Moreover, the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) from the Ministry of Labour, Training & Skill’s Development (MLTSD) must certify those members.
Let’s now understand how to become a certified JHSC member.
Who’s a certified JHSC member?
A certified JHSC member is one who has successfully completed the CPO-Approved JHSC Certification Training Program. JHSC training program has two (2) parts. To become a certified JHSC member, you will need to complete both parts successfully.
How long is JHSC training valid?
JHSC training program is valid for a period of three (3) years from the date of completion of part 2 training. Moreover, you must complete a one-day CPO-Approved Refresher Program within 3 years of completing part 2 to maintain the validity of the your JHSC Certification.
What are the different JHSC training delivery methods?
4S is the FIRST private provider to provide JHSC completely online
JHSC Part 1: eLearning (only 15 hrs; save ~1 day)
Learn anywhere, anytime from anyplace with self-paced learning modules. However, it is only available for JHSC Part 1, as Part 2 needs to be done through a virtual classroom session for two days. That said, participants will have access to a dedicated instructor during their JHSC eLearning. In fact, the biggest advantage is that participants can complete Part 1 in as little as 15 hours! Hence, they save a full day.
“After completing 4S JHSC E-Learning Module for Part 1 I felt as if I was able to thoroughly grasp all of the contents taught and able to apply them into real-life situations from the start. I was able to complete the Module on my own time (over the course of a few days) and was able to pick up exactly where I had left off with no glitches. Everything taught was simplified, and the interactive element combined for one of the best learning experiences from an E-Learning Module I have received to date.”
