What is WHMIS?
The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) has been in effect in Canada since 1988. It is the Canadian standard for communication through labels and safety data sheets transmitted by training programs. The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is enforced through federal and provincial regulations. These laws require Canadian suppliers (including importers and distributors) to supply material safety data sheets and labels for all controlled products sold or distributed to be used in a workplace in Canada. The WHMIS regulatory agency in Quebec is the CNESST.
Who needs to be trained?
All persons in the company who could potentially be exposed (directly or indirectly) to controlled products; factory personnel, supervisors, restaurant employees, garage employees (in fact, all Canadian workers) must receive the required WHMIS training.
Our WHMIS 2015 in-company and WHMIS online training courses have been verified by the CNESST, in Quebec.
Following their WHMIS 2015 training, employees will master the different aspects of the Hazardous Materials Regulations, their classification, labelling requirements and safety data sheets. In addition to knowing how to protect themselves and thus ensure their safety and that of others, they will be in a position to prevent costly accidents.
Intended audience: Staff that may be exposed to hazardous materials in the course of their employment.
Duration: 3 hours (people in daily contact with hazardous materials). This training is punctuated by several exercises (approx..35% of the time) facilitating learning and motivating employees to apply the concepts learned.
Familiarization: 2 hours (people who are occasionally exposed to hazardous materials) – without exercises.
Note : All our in-house courses include a copy of our WHMIS 2015 guide book for each candidate.
All candidates receive a training certificate recognized by Health Canada and the provincial authorities. Our training has been verified by the CNESST, in Quebec.
