New Joint Health and Safety Committee Standards

New Ontario Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) Certification Training Program and the Provider Standards are anticipated to come into effective in early 2015. For employers in Ontario who have a requirement to establish such committees the new standards will be designed to provide higher quality and consistent training of certified members. The new standards, developed by the Certification Review Committee and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board will be provided in two parts. Part one will address training in a generic scope covering all workplaces where certified JHSC members are required and would have to be taken from an approved training provider. The second part will address training with a sector-specific scope and will be formalized with approved training programs taken from approved training providers. Until the new standards take effect, the current version of the certification standard is valid.
