< Back to Courses WHMIS 2015 GHS Training
GHS 2015 WHMIS Training is the latest version of this training (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System Global Harmonized Standard).
This course is in alignment with the changes Canada has recently made to adapt the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. This has resulted in WHMIS going through a transitional phase.
Until December 1, 2018, as suppliers are transitioning from WHMIS 1988 to WHMIS 2015 (GHS), employees may see both WHMIS systems being used on a job site. At this time the transition will be complete. Employers, Manufacturers, Suppliers and Importers will then be required to use WHMIS 2015 (GHS).
Book your training today to become compliant in the newest WHMIS (GHS) training standards.
If a product in your workplace comes with a WHMIS material safety data sheet, safety data sheet, symbol, pictogram, or label then GHS 2015 WHMIS Training is for you and your staff.
WHMIS training is legally required for all employees who are exposed or likely to be exposed to a hazardous material or controlled product at the workplace.
GHS stands for the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. It defines and classifies the hazards of chemical products, and communicates health and safety information on labels and safety data sheets. The goal is that the same rules for classifying hazards, and the same format and content for labels and safety data sheets (SDS) will be adopted and used around the world. An international team of hazard communication experts developed GHS.
By taking METI’s GHS 2015 WHMIS Training you will be able to distinguish many elements of the old vs the new course: when and how to use a material safety data sheet and a safety data sheet; the “old” symbols from the “new” pictograms; the “old” hazard classes from the “new” hazard classes; GHS hazard groupings and building block concept.
