WHMIS training has changed in the workplace in Ontario (WHMIS Legislation) and
other jurisdictions across Canada. As of December 1st, 2018 all workplaces should have completed the transition over from the OLD WHMIS program to what is now called WHMIS 2015 (GHS) Globally Harmonized Standard.
The reasoning behind this is to have all companies across the globe on a standardized information system pertaining to hazardous products. During this transition period, you may receive hazardous products that follow
either WHMIS 1988 or WHMIS 2015 (GHS) requirements.
To ensure your worker's protection, employers must educate and train workers about WHMIS 2015 as new labels and SDSs appear in their workplaces. The BRight Group's WHMIS certification program was developed to assist with illiteracy in today's workplace. These classroom programs save training time and money.
