Annual WHMIS Review and Refresher course
For Employers who want to conduct a WHMIS review with each employee. And includes a WHMIS knowledge test options as a WHMIS refresher.
This is a three (3) module course intended to meet the need for employers to review their WHMIS program. This is done by having the employees complete a WHMIS Review as a set of questions in the online course. Each question is based on the requirements for employees to be aware of or understand part of their WHMIS program.
For example, employees are expected to know where the SDS or MSDS are located and to have ready access. There is a question in the WHMIS review that asks if the employee knows where the SDS or MSDS are located and do they have access to them. If they do not answer that they know where they are and have access to them their supervisor or manager will be notified that this question requires a follow up to provide that employee with the correct information.
The third module has a built in WHMIS knowledge test which helps to gauge each employee's knowledge level and to determine if their knowledge is sufficient with this refresher test and follow up or if full retraining is needed.
This course is a good option to add into a WHMIS program. It is common to provide WHMIS education for new employees, especially young employees or ones that have never taken WHMIS education course before. This would be followed up with WHMIS training that is specific to the workplace and the hazardous products in the workplace. The training would include the safe handling, storage and disposal procedures in place to protect worker health and safety. This new WHMIS review and refresher is designed to be completed annually as a check-in with each employee and fits nicely with the other two versions of WHMIS.
