This Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) Certification Training Provider Standard outlines the criteria training providers must meet to be approved by the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) to deliver an approved JHSC Certification Training Program.

This Standard will be reviewed by the Ministry of Labour at least every five years.

CPO approval is granted to those training providers that meet the JHSC Certification Training Provider Standard after a successful assessment and review with respect to the delivery of an approved JHSC certification training program. While reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the criteria set out in the JHSC Certification Training Provider Standard are maintained by training providers, responsibility resides with employers to ensure compliance with training requirements under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). In determining what rights or obligations a party may have under the legislation, reference should always be made to the official version of the Act and the regulations.
