Novi, Michigan (PRWEB) March 15, 2016
MasteryTCN™’s newest course, “WHMIS and The Global Harmonizing System Employee Training,” trains employees on the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS 2015). Canada’s WHMIS has been updated to include changes to comply with the UN’s Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), and all Canadian workplaces will be transitioning to the updated WHMIS requirements over the next few years.
This course, with video produced by ERI Safety Videos, covers the basics on the written WHMIS plan, the Global Harmonizing System, and container labels. The course demonstrates the use of pictograms on container labels, detailing the pictograms for physical hazards, health and environmental hazards, and transportation. Signal words, hazard and precautionary statements and other label components are explained. The course concludes with lessons on safety data sheets (SDS) and personal protective equipment.
This course, published on MasteryTCN’s courseware platform, is presented in HD video, and is available to take in both English and Canadian French. This course has the standard features learners prefer and expect from courses published on the MasteryTCN platform. All courses on this platform can be accessed from any device, including all smart phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. Courses on the MasteryTCN platform include interactive learning assessments, and many feature closed captioning. All MasteryTCN courses are compatible with any SCORM Learning Management System.
For general information on WHMIS, visit this page on the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety website. Health Canada, “the Federal department responsible for helping Canadians maintain and improve their health,” offers a resource on the specific dates on the transition phases for organizations to follow while moving towards meeting all WHMIS 2015 requirements.
