- Discuss the rights, duties, and responsibilities of certified members and workplace parties
- Demonstrate the ability to identify hazards, complete Job Hazard Analysis, and make recommendations
- Recognize and apply changes and/or updates to legislation, standards, codes of practice, and new safety initiatives from the last three years
- Identify methods to evaluate the health of your IRS
- Encourage discussion within the group to expose best practices with other JHSC members and teach techniques to help adopt JHSC best practices for your workplace

Managers, supervisors, lead hands, or other JHSC members who have successfully completed JHSC Training Part 1 & 2 are still welcome and can benefit from taking this course. However, individuals who are not JHSC certified will not receive JHSC certification by taking this course.
Does JHSC Certification expire?
Every 3 years, JHSC members with certification must attend a refresher training course to uphold their certified status.
What happens if I do not take Refresher Training within three years?
Failure to participate in a Refresher Training program within three (3) years of completing Part 2 could lead to the CPO revoking your certification. In the event of certification revocation, you will be required to complete certification training again, including JHSC Part 1 and Part 2 courses.
What are the consequences if I don't undergo Part 2 Training within a year of completing Part 1 Training?
If you fail to finish your JHSC Part 2 training within twelve (12) months of completing JHSC Part 1, you will be required to redo your JHSC Part 1 training.
