What is JHSC Training?


A joint health and safety committee (JHSC) is a forum for bringing the internal responsibility system into practice. The committee consists of labour and management representatives who meet on a regular basis to deal with health and safety issues. The advantage of a joint committee is that the in-depth practical knowledge of specific tasks (labour) is brought together with the larger overview of company policies, and procedures (management). Another significant benefit is the enhancement of cooperation among all parts of the work force toward solving health and safety problems. In smaller companies with fewer than a specified number of employees, a health and safety representative is generally required. 


What makes our JHSC different?


Participants receive high quality training without the higher costs and loss of productivity associated with in-person training. Our online training programs are presented in a dynamic interactive style that maximizes engagement while increasing comprehension and retention.


BCRSP has previously awarded CM points for this course. The current contains several technical hours and may be eligible for BCRSP CM points. See BCRSP web site at for CM point criteria.


Course Objectives:


The philosophy behind the Act is known as the 'internal responsibility system' (I.R.S.) and although this phrasing is not mentioned in any legislation, the Ministry of Labour's guide to the act makes it clear that the government expects cooperation at all levels. The I.R.S. is based on the principle that every individual in the workplace is responsible for health and safety. The driving force behind an effective health and safety management system includes a cooperative effort from all parties within the organization.


Effective committees can assist the employer in strengthening the I.R.S. and reducing the risk of occupational illness and injury by recognizing hazards and making recommendations for controls.


Certification training was established to ensure those companies who were required to have a joint health and safety committee actually had members who understood their role.  There is no point to having a joint health and safety committee if it is not effective.


Certification training consists of two (2) parts.  Completion of the JHSC Certification Part 1 (Basic Certification) training program is the first step in becoming a Certified Member of your Joint Health and Safety Committee. 


Part 1 of the Joint Health and Safety Committee Certification consists of 4 main elements:


  • Health Safety and the Law

  • Hazard Identification and Control

  • Investigation Techniques; and

  • Prevention Resources


Every effort will be made to ensure the objectives of the course will appeal to the most diverse audience possible. Where feasible the course will apply to numerous applications.  Following the completion of this course, the student will be able to better understand the roles and responsibilities of workplace parties and the health and safety committee.


Part 2 of the JHSC is broken down into 3 industry groups:


  • Service Industry 

  • Warehousing & Distribution
