Dalhousie Internal Environmental Health & Safety (EHS)


Please note: This course is for Dalhousie Faculty, Staff & Students ONLY

Every worker who works with, or in proximity to, a hazardous product in the workplace must have Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) training. In February 2015, WHMIS was modified to align with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for classifying and labeling chemicals known as WHMIS 2015.

This course will cover all the major elements of the WHMIS 2015 requirements giving the participant a strong general foundation to understand the risks associated with working with or around chemicals. However, it is important to note that additional worksite specific training may also be required to properly address the specific chemicals in use in that workplace.
