WHMIS Training Course
Course by the Canadian Red Cross
Course Description: Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) 2015 Online is based on the current 2015 WHMIS legislation and meets the legislated requirement for general WHMIS training. Employers must also provide workplace-specific training and instruction for each of the hazardous products present in their specific workplace.
WHMIS 2015 was introduced with a transition period spanning several years, culminating in full implementation by December 1, 2018. During this phase, suppliers had the option to comply with either WHMIS 2015 or the older WHMIS 1988 system. Consequently, workplaces might have hazardous products with WHMIS 2015 labels, classifications, and Safety Data Sheets, as well as those using WHMIS 1988 labels.
This training provides participants with information about cannabis in the workplace, particularly addressing the issue of impairment. It also provides practical guidance for developing and implementing effective policies and procedures.
Intended Audience: Everyone
Course Prerequisites: None

WHMIS Online is an active learning experience, using interactive content screens and online exercises to engage learners and reinforce key concepts. Mandatory testing ensures that participants have met learning objectives and retained the required knowledge.
Participants must demonstrate their understanding of the material to complete the course. The course is structured into six modules. To advance from one module to the next, participants must successfully pass a mandatory test. Those who do not pass the test must review the module and re-test. There is no set limit to the number of retests allowed. Questions for retests are randomly drawn from a test bank, guaranteeing that each retest presents unique questions.
Upon successfully completing the course, participants will be given access to a printable WHMIS certificate for their records.
WHMIS Online is self-paced, unlike classroom training. Participants may leave the course at any time and can resume where they left off. The time required to complete the course will depend on many factors including the participant’s learning style and prior knowledge of course material. Most participants will complete WHMIS Online in less than 2 hours.
