Description

This updated e-course features an improved look and functionality to enrich your learning experience.

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) has aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). GHS is a worldwide system with a common set of rules for classifying hazardous products, common rules for labels, and a standard format for safety data sheets (SDSs). As of December 1, 2018, there must be WHMIS 2015 labels and safety data sheets for all hazardous products in the workplace.

This course familiarizes you with the WHMIS 2015 system and how it is used in workplaces. Learning about WHMIS 2015 is part of the knowledge that you need to protect yourself and your co-workers from hazardous products.

This course was developed by CCOHS in partnership with the Workplace Hazardous Materials Bureau of Health Canada.

Upon completion of the e-course and successful completion of the accompanying multiple choice exam, learners will be able to print a Certificate of Completion. With a multi-seat account, employers are able to track and verify that their workers have successfully completed the course; simply add the number of seats you wish to purchase in the order box above.
