WHMIS Training Course
Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is a hazard communication system designed to ensure workers using hazardous materials, also known as controlled products, have the necessary information to safely handle, store and dispose of these materials.
The primary objective of this course is to provide participants with the skills necessary to access and apply the information needed to protect their health and safety when working with, or in proximity to, WHMIS controlled products.
Students receive concise information regarding their work place chemicals from reading the M.S.D.S (Material Safety Data Sheets). You will learn to recognize three types of labeling.
You will be provided with a WHMIS handbook as governed by the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety and Government of Canada.
