The WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) training course  provides mandatory training for workers who manufacture, work with, or are in proximity to controlled products in their workplace.   

WHMIS Defined
WHMIS is a comprehensive national hazard communication standard and system for safe management of hazardous chemicals, legislated by both federal and provincial jurisdictions.  Collaboratively developed by labor, industry, and government it is unique in that it represents a consensus of these three groups.  The legislation provides that workers must be informed about  hazards in the workplace and that they must receive appropriate training to enable them to work safely. To accomplish this, all suppliers (manufacturers, importers, packagers and processors) must label and prepare Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for products they make, import, package, or process .
