Appropriate for all sectors, this program is the first part of the training process for individuals to be certified under guidelines established and enforced by the Ontario Ministry of Labour. Workplaces with 20 or more regular employees must have at least two personnel who have completed the certification training.
Upon completion of Certification Part One, participants will understand the relevant legislation as well as their legal rights and responsibilities. Participants will also learn about common workplace hazards and key steps to addressing these hazards. This knowledge will prepare participants to carry out workplace inspections and accident investigations, and enable them to function effectively as JHSC members.
