WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information Systems) helps identify the hazards of products and groups them by similar properties or hazards into classes. The Hazardous Products Regulations specifies the criteria used to place the products within each classification, which are then made by the manufacturer or supplier for products used in Canada.
WHMIS is Canada’s hazard communication standard for providing health and safety information on hazardous products intended for use, handling, or storage in Canadian workplaces. WHMIS 2015 eLearning from Safety First meets the Ministry of Ontario standard for general training.
Each workplace must still provide site-specific training to all employees, where applicable.
Course Duration: Length of voice-over plus 30 mins, however, this can vary due to the course being self-based learning with no maximum time requirements.
