Description:

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is changing. The new WHMIS is aligning with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). GHS is a worldwide system. Its goal is to have a common set of rules for classifying hazardous products, common rules for labels, and a standard format for safety data sheets (SDSs).

Understand the labels and the hazards classification, recognize the symbols and the hazards that they represent.

This course familiarizes you with the new WHMIS system and how it will be used in workplaces. Learning about the new WHMIS 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 (formerly the National Office of WHMIS).

Topics include:

  • Overview of WHMIS
  • Overview of hazard groups and classes
  • Labels
  • Physical hazards

Upon completion of the course you will be able to:
