WHMIS 2015 familiarizes employees with the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. The course is designed in accordance to the latest national safety standards and includes information regarding the international standard GHS or the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling Chemicals.
The aim of the course is to teach employees who are likely to interact with hazardous substances how to properly handle, store, and dispose of such materials in order to maintain a safe work environment for themselves and those around them.
WHMIS 2015 is addressed to both employees who frequently come in contact with hazardous materials in the workplace and their supervisors. It is ideal for job candidates who wish to complete their CVs prior to an interview, as well as businesses looking to comply with the latest safety regulations.
Hazardous materials are more likely to be present in some industries than others. These include:
- Energy & Electricity,
- Oil & Gas,
- Logistics (Shipping & Warehousing)
- Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare,
- Automotive & Manufacturing,
- Agriculture & Food,
- Waste Management.
In Canada, businesses that work with hazardous materials are required by law to ensure a safe work environment for their employees. As such, they are also responsible to provide and implement adequate WHMIS 2015 training.
The employee, on the other hand, must participate in the training program and apply the strategies they have learned to maintain their safety in the workplace. Furthermore, many potential employees in specific industries choose to independently acquire and complete the program to ensure better odds of being hired.
To obtain a certificate in WHMIS 2015, you must become familiar with the national system for classifying hazardous materials and become able to recognize pictograms, labels, and signs specific to WHMIS. In addition, you must be able to identify different hazardous substances, choose the correct protective equipment, and safely handle, store, and/or dispose of such materials while at work.
Canadian legislation recommends that WHMIS 2015 training should be completed on a yearly basis. In addition, because different jobs imply distinct work environments/conditions, employees must re-take this course whenever they change employers.
Those who acquire WHMIS 2015 training also consider courses in NORM, Personal Protective Equipment, and/or TDG.
