Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS)

Mishandling of hazardous materials can have disastrous consequences, whether at work, at school, in the places you do business or at home. Knowing what you are dealing with, how to minimize exposure, and how to respond when the unthinkable happens can drastically reduce the potentially life-altering consequences of an encounter with hazardous materials.

The intent of this online WHMIS training program is to provide WHMIS certification, but more importantly, it provides participants the foundation for using knowledge to prevent accidental and long-term exposure to the harmful effects of hazardous workplace materials. Upon successful completion, a WHIMIS certificate will be issued automatically.
