WHMIS is a national hazard communication standard. It encompasses such key elements as labeling of “controlled products”.
WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. Certain products are classified as ‘Controlled’ products which can be hazardous if controlled, handled, stored, or disposed of improperly. WHMIS is the classification and identification system designed to identify such materials with instructions on their proper handling. While working in a logistics and warehouse business, WHMIS training is necessary along with Forklift Training as incomplete knowledge of such materials can harm workers, operators, and equipment.
CN Lift Safety provides WHMIS Training in Brampton, Toronto, and Mississauga, in compliance with OHSA guidelines. The main objective is to train and educate participants regarding labels and MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets).
