PLEASE NOTE: Given the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 crisis, WHSC has recently innovated to offer Certification training in live, real-time virtual classrooms. For now, these are the only WHSC-scheduled training options available. Although scheduled courses in traditional classrooms are on offer for the fall. To sign up for virtual training, see your options under the “Virtual Courses” tab below.

With few exceptions Certification training standards have not changed with COVID-19. Ontario-regulated employers must ensure their joint health and safety committee (JHSC) includes a trained, certified worker and employer member. 

JHSC committees are required in workplaces employing 20 or more workers or using a designated substance. To become certified, committee members must complete Certification Part I training and then Certification Part II training within 12 months of the initial training. To maintain their status, certified members must complete Certification Refresher every three years thereafter.

JHSC Certification training and time to complete the training must be paid for by the employer and approved by the Ministry of Labour’s Chief Prevention Officer (CPO). Workers Health & Safety Centre JHSC Certification training is both cost-effective and CPO-approved. We deliver trusted health and safety certification in Ontario to workplaces in all sectors of the economy and throughout the province. Every training participant will receive a portable occupational health and safety certificate.
