Globally Harmonized WHIMIS

ntended for workers, this program offers an overview of the new GHS WHMIS. Participants will explore new standardized information, classification and communication requirements for hazardous products used, stored, handled or disposed of in the workplace. This includes new GHS-modified WHMIS labels, safety data sheets and pictograms. Like all WHSC programs, this training applies adult learning principles to ensure learning is achieved. Note: Workplaces in Ontario have begun to transition from original WHMIS to the new GHS WHMIS. During transition, which will be completed by December, 2018, employers must train workers in both original WHMIS and GHS WHMIS when both are in use.
