Worker receives online WHMIS training in Ontario


Workplaces should have completed transition from original WHMIS to Globally-Harmonized (GHS) WHMIS by now. To help workplaces seeking to comply with WHMIS training in Ontario, Workers Health and Safety Centre (WHSC) has developed training outlining requirements for new WHMIS hazard classes, pictograms, labels and safety data sheets. Employers have an obligation to provide WHMIS training in the new system, regardless of whether workers were trained in the old system. Upon successful completion of our WHMIS training program, WHSC issues a WHMIS certificate of training and maintains student records for any future requirements.

WHSC has also innovated to offer WHMIS training in real-time, online virtual classrooms. All that is required is a high-speed internet connection and a computer with a functioning camera, speakers and microphone. As a participant you’ll learn from a WHSC-qualified instructor alongside other remote learners in interactive sessions conducted from the safety of your home or workplace. To help ensure the integrity of the learning experience, smartphones are not permitted.
