What Is WHMIS?
WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Material Information System, and is the collaborative effort of federal, provincial and territorial governments as well as industry to regulate a uniform hazard communication system across Canada. WHMIS saw its birth with the Hazardous Products Act, which established the standard for a national chemical and hazard communication system. For More information on WHMIS you can visit Health Canada's Website, which contains extensive information regarding Hazardous Materials and Controlled Products as per the government legislation.
WHMIS Training is a two fold process, and we provide all of the tools necessary to deliver a holistic Training Program. A WHMIS Training program, as defined by Health Canada is composed of two things: general knowledge training, and site-specific training. Our WHMIS course is the majority of the training process and encompasses the general knowledge of symbols, classification, MSDS sheets, and all other pertinent information required by legislation. All of our WHMIS training products contain the GHS supplemental information.
What Is TDG?
TDG, or Transportation of Dangerous Goods is the product of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act. The TDG legislation was created to prevent any sort of mishap during the handling, transportation, offering or importing of goods labelled as Dangerous by Canadian government. Due to the nature of the legislation, the standards are governed by Transport Canada, who we are proud to say are also a client of the TDG WHMIS Compliance Centre.
