DEVELOPMENT OF EFFECTIVE “JOINT HEALTH AND SAFETY COMMITTEES” (JHSC)
Effective Joint Health and Safety Committees are essential for the provision of a healthy and safe workplace. A committee works most effectively when its role is clearly defined and accepted. Committee members, their employer, other managers and workers must, first of all, understand why the Joint Health and Safety Committee is important. Training of your members is critical to establishing an effective committee.
CERTIFICATION TRAINING FOR JOINT HEALTH AND SAFETY COMMITTEE MEMBERS
As required by the Occupational Health and Safety Act, all workplaces in Ontario employing more than 20 workers must have a Joint Health and Safety Committee. At least one (1)worker member and one (1) management member must be CERTIFIED MEMBERS and have completed Part 1 and Part 2 Certification Training by a Ministry of Labour approved Training Provider.
