Workers receive WHMIS training in Ontario



PLEASE NOTE: Given the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 crisis, WHSC has recently innovated to offer WHMIS online training in live, real-time virtual classrooms. We have also revamped entirely our regular, online WHMIS training option. While our regular, online WHMIS course includes one short live session, it by in large is a safe-paced course taken any time, any day. Finally, scheduled courses in traditional classrooms are on offer for the fall. To sign up for currently offered training, see your options under the “Virtual Courses”  or “Online Courses” tab below.

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 Ontariothe Workers Health & 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 requirement.
