Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) 2015 - Global Harmonized System (GHS)
Who Should Attend:
Every worker needs WHMIS training specific to the workplace. Employers must ensure that all workers are trained on hazardous products before they are used.
The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System is a comprehensive Canada-wide system for providing employers and workers with information on hazardous materials used in the workplace. Silecio’s WHMIS 2015 training program provides participants with health and safety information on hazardous products intended for use, handling, or storage in Canadian workplaces. WHMIS has aligned with the worldwide hazard communication system known as GHS – the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.
Silecio’s WHMIS 2015 course educates participants on the chemical materials they may encounter while on the job. This course works to reduce the risk of accidents associated with hazardous materials, and also instructs participants on safety procedures, should they ever face exposure.
