The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is a nationwide right-to-know legislation that gives Canadian workers the right to access and understand information on hazardous chemical substances found in their workplace. Canada-wide regulations require that anyone working either with, or in the vicinity of, materials classified under WHMIS regulations receive proper training.
The Saskatchewan Safety Council WHMIS course will provide students with the ability to identify, handle, and store a regulated material and reduce the chance of an incident causing harm. It will also provide details on how to implement and maintain a WHMIS program into your workplace. We can tailor the course to fit your specific needs in order to ensure you get the most out of this important program. This program provides training in both WHMIS 1988, WHMIS 2015 and WHMIS 2022.
