Upcoming Changes to Health and Safety Training in Ontario

The Ontario government is focusing on how to help businesses reduce the burden and associated costs of sending employees for five day certification training. The new standard will also simplify certification requirements and provide easy access to required training.

The changes include:

  • Part I JHSC certification training can be taken either online, in class or a mix of both.

  • Simplifying certification requirements.

  • Allowing additional time for Part II training to be completed within a year of completing Part I.
