Course Summary:

As mandated by Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, all workplaces that employ more than 20 labourers must establish and maintain a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) to oversee and ensure the protection of their workers. In this course, participants will discuss why Joint Health and Safety Committees are important, examine the Occupational Health and Safety Act’s various requirements and penalties, and identify opportunities for improved Health and Safety measures in their own organizations.
