We are postponing all in-person courses until further notice due to COVID-19. We want to do our part to help slow the spread of this virus, and are unable to carry on in-person first aid or Foodsafe courses while maintaining social distancing. We are looking into alternative delivery methods, and will resume courses as soon as it is safe to do so.

With the healthcare workers putting their lives at risk and the shortage that is sure to come, our incoming masks will now be reserved for health organizations that need them. We are reaching out and working alongside them to ensure they have the protection they need. If this is you, you can see what we have available here – let us know how we can help.

WHMIS (GHS) Training

WHMIS (GHS) Training

Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS)

This course meets all of Health Canada’s training requirements under the Hazardous Products Regulations, for all persons involved in handling workplace chemicals.

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.
