The Alberta Health & Safety Code requires that employers provide WHMIS training to all workers who work with or who are in proximity to controlled products.
WHMIS has been revised to align with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS), an international set of standards for managing hazardous materials.
Topics covered in the course include:
- Introduction and Responsibilities
- WHMIS then and now: what's changed?
- Pictograms and Labels
- Safety Data Sheets
NOTE: Taking the online WHMIS course will constitute the generic portion of your WHMIS training. In order to meet the legislated training requirements, this generic training must be supplemented by worksite training addressing the specific hazards at the worksite.
