Canadian law requires that any person exposed to hazardous materials in the workplace must be trained in Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS).

This comprehensive WHMIS 2015 course includes the new Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling for chemicals (GHS) enacted in 2015. It also covers content from the previous WHMIS system (WHMIS 1988).

This course consists of 6 chapters and a final exam. Once you pass your exam, you may print your certificates of completion (wallet & wall sized). Training may be paused or resumed at any time, is fully narrated, and includes interactive exercises to ensure understanding of course content. Alternative training methods are also available including book based distance learning, and classroom training.

It is an employee’s responsibility to participate in WHMIS safety training, take necessary measures to protect themselves and co-workers, and to properly identify and control hazardous materials. The onus is on the employer to ensure that hazardous materials are properly labelled, to have SDSs available, and to offer education and training about the products in the workplace.

This training program is intended to be completed entirely online. Depending on your duties or workplace hazards, supplementary training for specific hazardous materials, Safety Data Sheets, workplace labeling practices, or other additional considerations may be required. Please contact us for more information or to arrange supplementary or hands-on training.

Inquire About Supplementary / On-Site Training

In general, employers tend to review their WHMIS training programs at least once per year, and more often if:

  • conditions at the workplace change;
  • new information on a controlled product becomes available; or
  • new products or reformulated products with different hazards are introduced.

The requirement for review does not mean the re-instruction automatically follows, but does identify any need for re-instructing workers.
