WHMIS 2015 for Managers and Supervisors

The system used across Canada to provide safety information about hazardous products in the workplace has changed. This course will help you understand and meet your health safety responsibilities as a manager or supervisor under WHMIS 2015. You will learn about your duties, pictograms and their meanings, product labels, and safety data sheets. Practical advice and guidance on basic health and safety measures are also included so you can take steps to protect your workers, and prevent injuries and illnesses.

WHMIS 2015 includes new standardized classification criteria, label requirements and safety data sheet requirements. As a manager or supervisor, you need to know your duties, ensure that your workers are trained, label all hazardous products properly, and make sure up-to-date safety data sheets are accessible.

WHMIS 2015 for Office Environments

In an office environment, chemicals can come in the form of cleaners, paints, flammable aerosols, and gas cylinders, which all have their own unique set of hazards. People who work in these environments must understand how to identify and deal with these hazards. WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) information helps workers to identify these products, understand their specific hazards, and store, handle and use them safely.

This e-course explains common chemical hazards found in office buildings and provides learners with the core knowledge required to meet legislated WHMIS 2015 education requirements. In addition, participants will need training and instruction specific to their worksite conditions and procedures.

WHMIS 2015 for Workers

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) has aligned 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).

This course familiarizes you with the "WHMIS 2015" system and how it is used in workplaces. Learning about WHMIS 2015 is part of the knowledge that you need to protect yourself and your co-workers from hazardous products.
