The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System is a tool to make the use of hazardous material safe. It includes product classification and hazard signs, labeling, material safety data sheets and training of workers handling these materials.
The WHMIS, in force in Canada since 1998, will undergo changes after June 1st 2015. The changes represent the CWS standards regarding information on the dangers associated with the use of hazardous materials in the workplace. This training aims to inform and prepare the worker to the upcoming WHMIS changes after the harmonisation of the “Globally Harmonized System”.
