WHMIS Training Image

One of the new courses we released this past month covers the Canadian hazard communication Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, or WHIMS, requirements.

WHMIS requires employers to inform workers about the hazards of chemicals in the workplace by labeling containers, providing safety data sheets, and training employees both to recognize hazardous materials and know how to protect themselves.

Continue reading to learn more about the course, including reading the learning objectives and viewing a short sample video.

As promised, here’s the short sample video from the new Workplace Hazardous Materials Information Systems (WHMIS) online training course.

The learning objectives for this new WHMIS course are:

  • Describe the purpose of WHMIS
  • Describe how chemical hazards are classified
  • Describe employer requirements under WHMIS
  • Identify and describe the healthy and physical hazards outline by WHMIS
  • Identify chemical hazards from pictograms and statements on container labels
  • Describe your rights and responsibilities as an employee
