WHMIS 2015 (GHS)

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 2015" system and how it is used in workplaces.  Learning about WHMIS 2015 is part of the knowledge that you need to protect yourself and your co-workers from hazardous products.

This course, WHMIS 2015 for Workers, provides worker education on the new WHMIS system, along with an exam and a certificate for those who complete it successfully.


This course was developed by CCOHS in partnership with the Workplace Hazardous Materials Bureau of Health Canada (formerly the National Office of WHMIS).
