Online WHMIS – GHS Training
Canadian law requires that any person exposed to hazardous materials in the workplace must be trained in Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System – Globally Harmonized System (WHMIS – GHS).
Worksite Safety’s WHMIS – GHS 2015 Certification program has been developed to meet and exceed the Canadian Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. This comprehensive course includes the new Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling for chemicals (GHS), as well as WHMIS legislation introduced in 1988.
It is an employee’s responsibility to participate in WHMIS – GHS safety training, take necessary measures to protect themselves and co-workers, and to properly identify and control hazardous materials. The onus is on the employer to ensure that hazardous materials are properly labelled, to have MSDSs available, and to offer education and training about the products in the workplace.
