Employers are legally obligated under section 9 of the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act to provide occupational health and safety training to their employees. In addition, employers must also ensure training for all joint health and safety committee (JHSC) members, and for designated first aid responders.
WorkSafeNB believes we need to work more closely with New Brunswick’s workplaces to improve workplace health and safety. That is why WorkSafeNB will be approving external providers to deliver JHSC workshops as of 2020. As there are many reputable and knowledgeable agencies that can deliver health and safety training, we will focus our resources and services to work more directly with our province’s workplaces.
We will only continue to publish lists of approved first aid training providers and JHSC training providers.

There will be two options for training delivery of the JHSC workshops. A blended option includes five e-courses and one day of classroom instruction. Register here for the e-courses, as part of the blended option.
