Health and Safety Certification Training Part 1 & 2
Ontario is unique in Canada, being the only province that has set standards for prescribed members of the Joint Health and Safety Committees (JHSC). We believe this to be a proactive prevention initiative in health and safety. Therefore we endorse strongly this training for JHSC members and all supervisory staff.
Beclin Associates Inc is approved by the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) to provide Certification Training Part 1. We normally run this course in a 2 day format, but on request can expand it to a 3 day course. The 2 day is sufficient presently to satisfy those people who are somewhat familiar with the principals of health and safety and are comfortable with a participative class environment.
Certification training provides the necessary elements for many levels of employees within any workplace to competently take care of the health and safety issues that generally occur on a day to day basis.
Full Certification training requires the participant to take both Part 1 and Part 2 training.
Who are required to be trained
The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires all workplaces with 20 or more regular employees to establish a Joint Health and Safety Committee. This committee has to have a minimum of 2 "Certified" members. One member shall represent the Employer's management; the other member shall represent the workers, and be selected by the workers. Should the workplace have a "Designated Substance" present that workplace also requires this training.
Who we recommend take the training
We highly recommend that all employees in a supervisory/management role take this course. The Act requires that supervisors be "Competent" and as such have knowledge of the Act. In addition we recommend that All Health and Safety Representatives take the Part 1 course.
Topics covered in Part 1
Health and Safety Law including duties, rights, and role of the Joint health and Safety Committee
Hazard identification, risk assessment, and control
Investigative techniques - accident investigation
Prevention resources - where to find other health and safety information
The participant takes Part 1 and completes the Evaluation Test, which we submit to the Ministry of Labour. Meanwhile the participant will return to the workplace and carry out a Hazard Assessment of their workplace. The MOL will respond to the participant advising of the status of the Evaluation Test. Most probably then advising the participant to complete the "Significant Hazard" Training in Part 2. When this is complete the participant and employer submit the record of training to the MOL who will then issue the full Certification document. The Part 2 training should follow Part 1 in a reasonably short time period, and may be completed before hearing from the MOL on the status of Part 1.
Certification Part 2 Modules.
Beclin Associates Inc. has a selection of modules available to satisfy most workplaces in the manufacturing, business, and office sectors. If we do not have it we generally develop it. The course duration depends on the number of "Significant Hazards" in your workplace.
Part 2 training may be a 1 day course, or a 2 day course.
