Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, at least one worker member and one management member of a joint health and safety committee (JHSC) are required to take a provincial Chief Prevention Office-approved two-part training program (the first certification training component must be completed before taking this course).

Part 2 certification is designed to provide participants with the information and tools they need as JHSC members to recognize, assess and recommend controls for the hazards commonly found in their own workplaces and industry sectors. This includes understanding how to identify the relevant legislation, as well as standards, guidelines and best practices as they apply to the hazards in question.

This course provides participants with an in-depth look at workplace hazards from six main categories (safety, physical, biological, chemical, musculoskeletal, and psychosocial). By looking at scenarios, case studies, and statistics on workplace injuries, participants will be able to recognize, assess, and control the hazards that are most likely to affect them in their own lines of work.
