Did you know Canadian law requires Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) training for all workers exposed to hazardous materials? Does your workplace have a photocopier or printer that employees use? If so, you need WHMIS training! Most people think of “hazardous chemicals” as big industrial containers with a skull and cross bones on it but items such as a toner or ink cartridge and detergents used in common areas can fall under WHMIS. This online WHMIS certification and GHS 2015 training was created to fulfill requirements for both the Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS) and the Globally Harmonized System (GHS).
The course includes information on traditional WHMIS training as well as new requirements for how GHS will change WHMIS. Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of both systems.

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is the standard set for all Canadian hazard communications. The Canadian WHMIS system contains standards for hazard classification, cautionary labeling, the provision of safety data sheets, and worker education, certificates, and training programs.
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals was designed as guidance for classifying and labeling hazardous chemicals. Unlike WHMIS (Canadian), GHS was designed to be adopted as the standard by many different countries.
WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System.
GHS stands for Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.
In Canada, WHMIS training is required for all workers that could be exposed to hazardous materials.
