WHMIS 2015 Training
(Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System)
Our Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) 2015 training program covers the new WHMIS 2015 legislation, which Canada has brought in to align its WHMIS training with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
The WHMIS 2015 legislation is currently in force. "In force" means that suppliers may begin to use and follow the new requirements for labels and safety data sheets (SDSs) for hazardous products sold, distributed, or imported into Canada. However, there is a transition period, where organizations must comply with the old system "WHMIS or the new System WHMIS 2015". The transition period ends on December 1, 2018
