This is a 3-4 hour program that will introduce WHMIS Education and Training for Workers. Employers must establish an education program for their workers to ensure that workers understand WHMIS and the hazards of the controlled products they work with or near. Education programs about WHMIS must be followed up with job-specific training in safe work procedures for handling, storing, and disposing of these controlled products. Workers must also be trained in emergency procedures in the event of an accident or spill.
The course familiarizes workers with the system used across Canada to provide safety information about hazardous products in their workplaces. Participants will learn about the WHMIS symbols and their meaning, the labels on products, and material safety data sheets (MSDSs). The course also includes valuable practical advice, so you will know basic health and safety measures to protect yourself and prevent workplace injuries and illnesses.
