The misuse of chemicals can have deadly results. Legislation states that workers who work with, or are in proximity to a controlled product must be informed about all hazards associated with the use, storage or handling of the product.

This course will enable your facility to be self-sufficient in your GHS / WHMIS training needs.


This course will develop presentation skills so the learner will be able to provide their students with an understanding of GHS / WHMIS through the recognition and comprehension of hazard symbols, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) / Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and product labels. Upon successful completion of this course a certificate, and/or wallet card where applicable, will be mailed to the student.


This course is designed to meet or exceed provincial legislation and industry best practices.

Duration and materials

The course includes five hours of theory, delivered in an extensive course on responsibilities, MSDS, hazard symbols and supplier and workplace labeling, which includes a written test. In the afternoon, the learner will present sections of the course to develop presentation skills. Train-the-Trainer (TTT) learners will receive a manual that includes detailed instruction on the course to be presented and a USB that includes a PowerPoint presentation of the course, student manuals and student exams.

Target audience

This course is designed for supervisors or workers who have the ability to speak in front of others, and a clear understanding of the controlled products used throughout the facility. It is strongly encouraged that TTT GHS / WHMIS instructors have an understanding of Adult Learning Theory, information on which will be included in the TTT GHS / WHMIS Manual.

Specific learning

Topics include presentation skills, an overview of GHS / WHMIS, labels (both supplier and workplace), classifications of hazardous products and their symbols and MSDS / SDS.
