WHMIS 2015

STS Group’s WHMIS 2015 training is intended for all workers that work with or in the proximity of any hazardous products set out under the Federal and Provincial Regulations.

Overview

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, commonly known as WHMIS, was updated in 2015 to the Globally Harmonized System of Classifications and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) to provide more standardized language on labels and safety data sheets, ensuring employers and workers receive the same core information about a product, regardless of supplier.

Although the old system was updated to a standardized format, the responsibilities of workers, employers, and suppliers have not changed.

WHMIS 2015 training addresses some hazardous properties of chemicals that are not addressed in WHMIS 1988 (e.g. specific target organ toxicity – single exposure and aspiration hazard).
