In order to receive certification, members of joint health and safety committees must complete both Parts 1 and 2 of JHSC Certification training. While Part 1 training focuses on general health and safety principles for JHSC members, Part 2 provides hazard-specific sector training that gives learners the knowledge and skills to recognize assess and control hazards in their workplace and to evaluate hazard controls. This includes understanding how to identify the relevant legislation, standards, guidelines and best practices as they apply to the hazards in question.
Each section of the two-day course reviews a significant hazard in forestry operations, including musculoskeletal disorders, slips, trips and falls, machine guarding issues, lockout processes, struck-by hazards and mobile equipment hazards. The course also provides a review of the content of JHSC Certification Part 1 training.
The course is designed for JHSC members who have already completed Joint Health and Safety Committee Certification Training Part 1 and are interested in completing their certification process.
