Clause 7.6 (1)(a) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) gives the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) the authority to establish training and other requirements that a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) member must fulfil in order to become a certified member.

Section 7.2 of the OHSA provides the CPO with the authority to establish standards a training provider must meet in order to be approved to deliver one or more approved training programs.

Section 7.1 of the OHSA provides the CPO with the authority to establish standards for training programs required under the OHSA and its regulations, and to approve training programs that meet those standards.

As part of the approval process, potential training providers will be required to conduct an “in-classroom” demonstration for the Ministry of Labour in order that an assessment of program delivery can properly be evaluated.

This assessment will be conducted through a process described in the standard and the Training Provider Application Guideline including a mandatory field visit which will be conducted by the Ministry of Labour prior to provider approval being granted.

This Standard outlines the minimum standard that must be met by training providers who are seeking approval by the CPO to deliver an approved JHSC certification training program. It should be read in conjunction with the JHSC Certification Training Program Standard which outlines the minimum standard that a program must meet in order to be approved by the CPO.

In order to be approved by the CPO as a JHSC certification training provider delivering an approved JHSC Certification Training Program, providers must be able to demonstrate both that they meet the JHSC Certification Training Provider Standard and that the program they are delivering meets the JHSC Certification Training Program Standard.
