The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) is an internationally agreed-upon system for standardizing the classification of chemicals through labelling and Safety Data Sheets (SDS).
Canada has adopted the GHS criteria and will be implementing it through the WHMIS system. Our course is designed to teach instructors about the changes to WHMIS and how to effectively deliver this session based on the changes outlined in the GHS.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Define GHS
- Identify the key differences brought forward by GHS
- Recognize pictograms for GHS hazard categories
- Identify the hazards associated with each category
- Find specific information about hazards and precautions using the SDS
All of our Train-the-Trainer courses equip you with the tools and materials you need to start training, including:
- Leader’s Guide – a resource to help guide you while you lead training that includes speaking notes, prompts, tips, and more
- 10 Participant Manuals to provide your learners with during your training
- Access to our Instructor Portal so you can download the PowerPoint Presentation to help facilitate training at your workplace and place an order to restock your Participant Manuals
