Onsite WHMIS Course

 WHMIS 2015 Training Course

Workplaces in Ontario and other jurisdictions across Canada have begun to transition from original WHMIS to Globally-Harmonized (GHS) WHMIS or WHMIS 2015. They must finish this transition no later than December, 2018.

WHMIS 2015 Training Course

WHMIS 2015 Training Course

The purpose of GHS is to standardize information about hazardous products and how it is communicated to workers on a global scale. This includes new hazard classes, pictograms, labels and safety data sheets. During the transition from original WHMIS to WHMIS 2015, employers must train workers in both systems and ensure they can apply the information to their everyday work. WHMIS 2015 can become the sole focus of worker training only when all products with the original WHMIS labels and MSDSs are no longer used in the workplace.
