Course Overview:

Part Two, Workplace-Specific Hazard Training focuses on significant hazards in your workplace. It covers how to assess those hazards and ways to control and/or eliminate them. To complete Part Two of Certification, both management and worker members must receive training in the significant hazards found in their workplaces.

The result of a workplace hazard assessment conducted by the employer determines their training needs. Employers are encouraged to conduct the assessment in consultation with the Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC), particularly those members who completed Basic Certification Training.

  • Conduct a workplace hazard assessment.
  • Determine significant hazards.
  • Determine training needs.
  • Ensure at least two members complete this workplace-specific training to be certified.
  • Report to the WSIB the training needs identified by the hazard assessment and confirm that training is complete by submitting a completed Workplace-Specific Hazard Training Confirmation.
