In an office environment, chemicals can come in the form of cleaners, paints, flammable aerosols, and gas cylinders, which all have their own unique set of hazards. People who work in these environments must understand how to identify and deal with these hazards. WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) information helps workers to identify these products, understand their specific hazards, and store, handle and use them safely.

This e-course explains common chemical hazards found in office buildings and provides learners with the core knowledge required to meet legislated WHMIS 2015 education requirements. In addition, participants will need training and instruction specific to their worksite conditions and procedures.

  • WHMIS 2015 basics
