WHMIS Training

A Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System course is required if you work with or around chemicals. Individuals who have not yet received the new WHMIS 2015 training must enroll in the course. This course is available online through the College of Continuing Education. The new online training course will provide an easy to follow comparison between WHMIS 1988 and 2015.
