JHSC Part Two: Workplace Specific Hazard Training
Part Two, Workplace Specific Hazards training, focuses on the recognition, assessment, control of hazards, and evaluation of hazard controls. Participants are to select at least six hazards relevant to their workplace and will learn how to handle each one. The employer will conduct a workplace hazard assessment to select the most appropriate hazards for their JHSC members to base their training on. The participant will also practice developing action plans and recommendations to ensure a safer workplace. Employers are encouraged to conduct their hazard assessment with the collaboration of their JHSC members.

Please note: depending on your workplace sector, and how many modules you require, your training may take more than two days to complete. For example, if your company is under the construction sector, you require a minimum of 3 days.
What if I miss the 6-month deadline?
Part Two, Workplace Specific Hazards training, must be completed within six months of Part One Basic Certification training. If more than six months have passed, participants must either take a JHSC Refresher course or click here to apply to the MOL for a (one time) extension.
What if I was certified with old standards?
Participants don’t have to take the refresher program every 3 years if they took both Part One and Part Two under the old standards.
If someone completes Part One under the old standard, they do not have to take Part 2 within 6 months. Part One doesn’t expire, so they can take Part 2 at any time.
However, after taking Part Two under the new standards, participants will be in the new process where they must take the JHSC Refresher course every 3 years.
JHSC Refresher Certification:
To stay current on JHSC standards, participants are required to take a 1-day JHSC Refresher training every three years after completing Part One and Part Two certifications.
