WHMIS TRAINING | ONSITE | ONLINE | TRAIN THE TRAINER COURSES
This WHMIS Training program teaches the required information about hazardous products in the workplace. It is mandatory that all workers understand the WHMIS Training system, know the hazards of the products they work with, how to apply the safe work procedures specific to their jobs and how to respond in an emergency. This program also teaches supplier requirements as regulated by federal legislation. Suppliers and employers must always follow the WHMIS Training requirements for labels and safety data sheets (SDSs) for hazardous products sold, distributed, or imported into Canada.
WHMIS Training is offered around Southern Ontario including Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Markham, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, Niagara, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge. We also offer WHMIS Train the Trainer courses.

How does updating WHMIS by adopting GHS standards improve workplace health and safety?
- WHMIS training canada has remained largely unchanged since it was established in 1988. It is a comprehensive system for communicating information about hazardous workplace chemicals. However, there are health and safety benefits to adopting the new GHS standards.
- The new criteria for classifying chemicals are more comprehensive and detailed than those in WHMIS 1988. This will make it easier for suppliers to indicate the severity of hazards.
- WHMIS 2015 training addresses some hazardous properties of chemicals that are not addressed in WHMIS 1988 (e.g. specific target organ toxicity – single exposure and aspiration hazard).
- WHMIS 2015 training provides for standardized language on labels and safety data sheets, ensuring employers and workers receive the same core information about a product, regardless of supplier, and enhancing their ability to understand it.
- The standardized format for safety data sheets makes information easier to find. Information is presented in a consistent manner in all safety data sheets, regardless of supplier. In addition, the information that workers and emergency responders need most appears first.
- The information requirements for safety data sheets are considered more comprehensive. Employers and workers will have access to a broader range of hazard information and it will be easier for employers to train their workers.
- Some of the new pictograms are considered to be more easily understood than the old symbols. This will improve hazard communication, particularly to workers who have difficulty reading.
