  2. Set up an inventory to determine all hazardous products in the workplace.
  3. Ensure all labelling and SDS requirements are fulfilled.
  4. Establish workplace controls.
  5. Establish emergency procedures.
  6. Provide worker education (this course) and training (at your workplace)
  7. Review and upgrade your program when required.

REMEMBER There are two parts to the WHMIS program.

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