Courses WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Material Information System)
 
 

Introduction:
WHMIS is a national hazard communication standard. It encompasses such key elements as labeling of “controlled products”, provision of material safety data sheets (MSDS) and employee education and training. The federal, provincial and territorial regulations stipulate that it is the responsibility of the employer to have such products properly labeled, stored, handled and disposed of and provide training to all employees involved in handling hazardous materials to ensure workplace safety.

Our training course not only teaches basics of WHMIS, but our instructors adapt course content with your company’s environment in mind. Training addresses specific hazards in your workplace and teaches your employees ways to protect themselves and those around them.
