Joint health and safety committees (JHSCs) and multi-workplace joint health and safety committees (MJHSCs) represent workers and employers at Ontario workplaces. An MJHSC is a single JHSC, established and maintained for more than one workplace, each of which would normally require its own JHSC.
Some members of a JHSC must receive training called ‘certification’ to perform their duties effectively. Our EHS Training & Consulting Services division can assist your organisation with this. Read below and contact us today for more information.
