Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) 2015 (S115)

Description

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, or WHMIS, is a comprehensive system for providing health and safety information on the safe use of hazardous products in Canadian workplaces. In 2015, the Government of Canada amended the Hazardous Products Regulations and the Hazardous Products Act to align WHMIS with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). WHMIS 2015 sets forth the roles and responsibilities of suppliers, employers, and workers. In this course, you will learn about WHMIS 2015, including the roles and responsibilities of suppliers, employers, and employees; physical and health hazards encountered in the workplace; required elements and standards of WHMIS-compliant labels and safety data sheets; and controls for eliminating or minimizing exposure to hazardous materials in the workplace.
