WHMIS 2015 with GHS

Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System - aligned with GHS

WHMIS 2015 with GHS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System – aligned with GHS) online training is a unique, interactive online training certification course that was developed in accordance with the federally legislated Hazardous Products Act (HPA) and its associated Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR).  WHMIS was aligned with the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of Classification & Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) in February 2015, and therefore adopts a standardized and consistent hazard communication system that is recognized internationally.

WHMIS 2015 is being phased in gradually and during this transition period, you may receive hazardous products that follow either the old WHMIS 1988 rules or the new WHMIS 2015 rules.  Therefore, workers will need to be trained regarding the new labels and safety data sheets as these products arrive in the workplace.  Because you may continue to see old WHMIS labels and material safety data sheets before GHS was adopted, Pinnacle is providing the companion course "WHMIS Labels & MSDS before GHS" at no charge to those who have completed "WHMIS 2015 with GHS" training online.

WHMIS training is also available in French. See SIMDUT 2015 avec SGH for details.

What is WHMIS?

Many workers handle hazardous materials in their day-to-day jobs while others work in close proximity to these substances. They could be cleaners or solvents or maybe even contaminated blood products. Hazardous materials may cause serious illness or injury to workers and those around them, or they could cause fire or explosion. WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System.  It is an information system that promotes worker health and safety while working with hazardous materials in the workplace. It is a national system that communicates hazard information in 3 key ways - labels on containers, safety data sheets, and worker education & training
