WHMIS is a short form for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. It is a comprehensive plan for providing information on the safe use of hazardous materials used in Canadian workplaces. Information is provided by means of product labels, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and worker education programs.
The main components of WHMIS are hazard identification and product classification, labelling, material safety data sheets, and worker training and education.
Both programs - WHMIS for School Custodians & Cleaners and WHMIS for Teachers - will explain what WHMIS is, why it is important to know WHMIS, and how workers and employees everywhere can protect themselves from accidents that are otherwise easily avoidable with knowledge of WHMIS.
Program Duration: 45 minutes (each program)
These programs are custom-designed for school teachers, custodians & cleaners across Canada.
