Federal Policy, Work Place Committees and Representatives (2 days)

Federal Policy, Work Place Committees and Representatives (2 days)
NEW! Cost-effective 2-day training session for federal workplace health and safety committees.


The Canada Labour Code requires all federal workplaces with 20 or more employees have a workplace health and safety committee. Employers that directly employ 300 employees or more need to have a policy committee. Employers are required to support the establishment of their committees and "ensure that members of policy committees, work place committees and health and safety representatives receive the prescribed training in health and safety."

The new Policy Committees, Work Place Committees and Health and Safety Representatives Regulations came into force on July 1, 2015,  replacing the Safety and Health Committees and Representatives Regulations (SHCRR). In addition to other changes, it prescribes the components of the health and safety training program required by the Canada Labour Code.


Ensure adequate competency of your committee members with this 2-day training session consisting of the following four courses tailored to the needs of federal government departments, agencies and other federally regulated workplaces:

  1. Health & Safety Committees and Representatives
  2. Managing Hazards
  3. Inspecting Your Workplace
  4. Hazardous Occurrence Investigations

Training meets the content requirements of the new Policy Committees, Work Place Committees and Health and Safety Representatives Regulations and will be delivered in English by a bilingual facilitator. Participant materials provided in your choice of either English or French.
