The learning outcomes in the JHSC Refresher training provide a framework that includes familiarity with workplace hazards that can be applied to the member’s specific workplace.

The refresher training will update learners on any legislative, regulatory or equipment (technological) changes, which may impact Joint Health and Safety Committees.
