Course Overview

JHSC Part 1, Basic Training, is a mandatory 3-day course that instructs participants in health, safety and the law and how to recognize and control hazards using the RACE methodology for 'R'ecognizing, 'A'ssessing, 'C'ontrolling and 'E'valuating workplace hazards.

JHSC members learn about their rights, roles and responsibilities as outlined in the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). This knowledge supports an organization’s Internal Responsibility System (IRS), the fundamental principle of the OHSA.

Upon completion, members will be able to summarize key JHSC Part 1 concepts, describe the process of RACE and apply its’ principles to the hazard modules covered in Part 2 training, as well as submit recommendations for a health and safety action plan to improve worker safety.
