Finding the Right JHSC Training Provider is Good for Business

In Ontario, if you have 20 or more employees you are legally required to have a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC). The purpose of your JHSC is to identify potential health and safety issues related to your workplace and bring these to the attention of your employer.

In essence, JHSC members become the architects of your workplace safety culture, creating an environment that minimizes accidents and injuries.

Increased productivity, higher job satisfaction and an enhanced company reputation are just a few of the positive benefits resulting from a safe work environment. A dynamic JHSC with well-trained members is the key to achieving these results.

An Effective JHSC Starts With Informed, Knowledgeable Members
JHSC members are normally selected from a company’s workforce. More often, these individuals do not have the pre-requisite knowledge or experience needed to carry out their mandated responsibilities.

In Ontario, a Joint Health and Safety Committee must have at least two members certified by the Ministry of Labour (MOL) after completing a minimum of 5 days of JHSC Part 1 and Part 2 certification training.

By law, employees must be paid by their employers while taking this training, and this cost is a significant investment of time and money. Assuming you want a good return on your investment, it is important to find a training provider who will deliver the best possible results.

To be effective, JHSC certification training must go beyond knowledge transfer and resource materials – it should give JHSC members the confidence, competency and motivation they’ll need to tackle the diverse safety challenges in their workplace. It is in your best interests to shop around and find a training provider who will give your JHSC its best chance to succeed.
