Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)

Are you in compliance with the new 2015 Global WHMIS standards?

Are you aware of the new supplier labels & requirements?

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), Canada’s national hazardous communication standard, is changing to incorporate the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), and internationally recognized standard for hazard classification and communication.

This 4 hour course familiarizes workers with the updated international WHMIS system used to provide safety information about hazardous products in the workplace. Participants will learn about the new and updated symbols and their meanings, which are now called WHMIS pictograms, the labels on products, and new SDSs (Safety Data Sheets). This course also includes valuable practical advice, so you will know basic health and safety measures to protect yourself and prevent workplace injuries and illnesses.

This course incorporates all the new requirements of the Globally Harmonized System with elements of the WHMIS 1988 for awareness and compliance purposes.
