The Ontario Occupational Health & Safety Act requires that all workplaces with more than 20 employees have two Certified Health and Safety Committee Members; one representing the workers and the other representing management. This course is the first step in the process of becoming “Certified” by the WSIB.
This WSIB approved course is required for all workplaces of 20 or more employees. This interactive course is a necessary component for Joint Health & Safety Committee members and brings the internal responsibility system into practice. Relevant to any medium or large workplace, this course contains the most current legislation. Delivered over a four-day period for Level 1, this program gives participants a full understanding of occupational health and safety legislation, including rights and responsibilities of workplace parties and certified representatives on joint health and safety committees in particular.
Upon the completion of the Certification Level 1 program, Joint Health & Safety Committee members are required to take the Level 2 program, which runs over two days.
