Employers have a responsibility to educate workers on the classification system that will be used in their workplace. If products will be classified according to WHMIS – GHS-2015 and new labels and SDSs provided, workers must receive WHMIS – GHS-2015 training. If products will be following WHMIS 1988 requirements, workers must be trained on the 1988 system. In most cases, workplaces will have some products that use the 2015 system and others that use the 1988 system. Those workers should receive training that provides
information on both the WHMIS 1988 and the WHMIS – GHS-2015 system.
Our WHMIS course has been updated to meet the training requirements needed during the transition period. It educates workers on both the WHMIS 1988 system and the new WHMIS – GHS-2015 system.
