WHMIS Training is Critical for a Safe Work Environment

While not required for all businesses, WHMIS training is an important consideration for any company with employees handling hazardous materials of any type. This can include everything from toxic chemicals to paint, cleaners, sealers and much more. WHMIS training ensures that you’re able to provide your employees with vital safeguards and knowledge of processes and procedures, but it also ensures that you’re in compliance with government regulations. Peak Performance Human Resources can offer you WHMIS training tailored to fit your specific needs.

WHMIS training in Toronto is a compliance requirement in the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). It’s an important safeguard for the health and safety of your employees – knowing how to handle hazardous materials, what to do in case of exposure or spills, and how to read material safety data sheets will provide greater safety and reduce liability.

It is critical that your employees are trained in:

  • How to use the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)
  • How to read and understand material safety data sheets (MSDS)

The goal of WHMIS training in Ontario is to ensure that your employees understand how to handle the substances they’re exposed to, as well as what to do in the event of an emergency.
