Due to high demand for online Occupational Health and Safety Committee re-certification training, WorkplaceNL has extended the deadline for re-certification. Any worker who completed Occupational Health and Safety Committee Member/Representative or Designate training prior to July 1, 2015 now has until July 31, 2018 to complete a re-certification program.
There are two re-certification options:
1. WorkplaceNL's free online re-certification course; and
2. A half day in-class re-certification course with a WorkplaceNL-approved trainer.
After July 31, workers who need OSH Committee training that have not re-certified will be required to complete the 2-day course with an approved trainer.
Please note that all Committee/Representative/Designate training conducted after July 1, 2015 has a 3-year expiry. Workers are asked to consult their individual training records to determine their specific expiry date and complete the necessary re-certification to maintain compliance with the training standard.
