HS100 - Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Courses
The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) has aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). GHS is a worldwide system. Its goal is to have a common set of rules for classifying hazardous products, common rules for labels, and a standard format for safety data sheets (SDSs). This course familiarizes you with the "WHMIS 2016" system and how it is used in workplaces. Learning about WHMIS 2016 is part of the knowledge that you need to protect yourself and your co-workers from hazardous products.
