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.
The JHSC Certification Part 1 - Blended Training Program is made up of two parts:
- JHSC Certification Part 1 eLearning (2 modules, 6.5 Hours total)
- JHSC Certification Part 1 online Classroom Session + Evaluation (2 Days)
Upon registration, instructions on how to access to the eLearning will be emailed to each learner. Prior to the online distance learning Classroom Session, participants must successfully complete both eLearning Modules, including a quiz at the end of each. You will not be able to register for the in-class component until you finish the eLearning component. Once you have completed the eLearning component you will receive an email that has a link to the in-class sessions that are available. You will then select one and register for it. Available classroom sessions for the Classroom Module can be viewed below to help plan your time.
Note: Registration for the classroom training portion closes 48 hours prior to session start date
Please note that the final evaluation administered at the end of the classroom module will test on knowledge obtained in both the eLearning Modules and the Classroom Module.
Note: JHSC Certification Part 2 must be completed within 12 months of completing JHSC Certification Part 1.
