REMEMBER There are two parts to the WHMIS program.

1. Classroom or Theory Part - EDUCATION (this online course is an example)

2. On the work-site training - IMPLEMENTATION Training which your boss, supervisor or designated person, MUST deliver to you prior to working on the job.

A few of the Key Issues at your workplace are;

  • what "controlled" products might you be working with
  • where is the safety equipment kept
  • what are the company emergency procedures
  • where is the MSDS information kept
