WSPS Received MOL Approval for New JHSC Certification Training Solutions
New Ministry of Labour (MOL) training standards for Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) Certification training will take effect on March 1, 2016 and Ontario companies with 20 or more employees will be impacted.
Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS) has been approved by the Ministry of Labour (MOL) to provide Part One and Part Two JHSC Certification Training under the new standards.
Most companies in Ontario with 20 or more employees are required to have a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) that complies with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). For most, that means having at least 2 committee members - 1 worker and 1 management representative - certified in health and safety.
How does it work? Certification status is awarded by the Ministry of Labour after completing BOTH Part One (basic) and Part Two (hazard-specific) training.
But certification is about more than just compliance - it also makes good business sense. When committee members are well-trained, they're not only better at identifying hazards and making recommendations for improvement, they're also better at being health and safety leaders, at increasing overall employee engagement.
The result? Higher productivity and less potential downtime from illness and injury.
Not sure if your workplace requires a JHSC with certified members? No problem. Call and speak to our Customer Care team at 1 877-494-WSPS (9777) ext. 0.
