Joint Health and Safety Committee Certification - Part 2: Office Workplace Hazards

The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires employers to provide training to at least two members of the Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC), one representing management and one representing workers.

The first step in complying with the Part Two Certification process is for the employer to complete a workplace hazard assessment to determine "significant hazards". JHSC members who successfully complete Part One training are required to receive further training on the "significant hazards" specific to their workplace. This training must take place within 12 months of having completed Part One training.

This 2 day course reviews the common "significant hazards" of an office workplace, in accordance with the Chief Prevention Officer's program criteria. Office workplace hazard recognition, assessment, control and evaluation are the focus of this course and participants will review how to complete an Action Plan with employer recommendations based on hazards within their own workplace. Participants will also learn how to complete the process for becoming a certified member of the JHSC.

This course, designed by our team of Occupational Health & Safety Consultants and approved by Norm Keith, B.A., J.D., LL.M. CRSP, a leading employment and labour lawyer and author of Canadian Health & Safety Law, focuses on:

  • Review of the JHSC Part 1 training program
  • Review of the concepts of hazard recognition, assessment, control and evaluation (R.A.C.E.)
  • How to apply the R.A.C.E. concepts to “significant hazards” in an office workplace including:
  • Workplace Violence & Harassment

  • Emergency Response and Preparedness
