Comply with the Current Legislation Through the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Course
Industries in need to comply with the valid health and safety national laws can be part of our quick Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) course, in which their employees will learn all the key elements to make a safer environment to everyone through the correct understanding of the hazardous materials international symbols.
Students will be able to analyze the current legislation on this matter, how are these materials classified and how to identify the many pictograms, labels, and classes developed to categorize them.
The in-depth program teaches the details of the new Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling for Chemicals (GHS), enacted in 2015, and the contents of the previous WHMIS system, originally published in 1988.
Our WHMIS course is compiled with the updated 2015 replacement to the 1988 guidelines. The entrance fee includes the books and materials required to attend the classes. Attendants who successfully finish the training will receive a valid printable certification in both wallet & wall-sized formats, valid for 1 year. Employees must frequently review their WHMIS program or at least annually.
