How to apply:
If you are on your Joint Occupational Health and Safety (JOHS) committee, and are interested in the B.C. Fed OH&S courses, your first step is to contact your Employer, or your JOHS committee co-chairs.
Let them know that you want to apply for the B.C. Fed OH&S courses as part of your eight-hour annual entitlement. You are entitled to one eight-hour OH&S training period each year.
You will need to work out arrangements with your employer about registration, fee payment and wage loss.
The employer may put in the application on your behalf and pay for the registration fees, or you may be asked to register yourself and request your employer to reimburse your for the fees.
