As you may be aware, Ontario is in the process of updating regulation 860 (WHMIS) to reflect the Global Harmonized System. The new system, known as WHMIS 2015, is being introduced to align Ontario’s requirements for controlled products to the requirements of many countries around the world. Some of the changes WHMIS 2015 will bring include replacing symbols with pictograms and adding new pictograms, and replacing MSDS with Safety Data Sheets.

A significant component of GHS will be training. In order to help you comply with this requirement, PSHSA has just released a WHMIS 2015 eLearning program. This program can either be accessed through PSHSA’s website or installed on your own Learning Management System (LMS). This eLearning is designed for all employees at all levels across all sectors. The training provides information on the new WHMIS 2015 standard as well as WHMIS 1988. This design aids learners in identifying the new requirements and changes from their previous WHMIS training while achieving compliance for both. By completing this course, Ontario workers and supervisors will be able to:

  • Describe what WHMIS 2015 is and why it is important to workers
  • Describe what GHS is and how it affects WHMIS 2015
  • Identify the WHMIS 2015 hazard classes and symbols
  • Identify the types of information covered on supplier and workplace labels
  • Describe the purpose, content and function of a Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
  • Describe the hazards associated with controlled products
  • Describe legal rights and duties under WHMIS 2015
