Why an Onboarding WHMIS course?


While WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) is perhaps the most prolific safety training course in Canada for workers, it doesn’t include other essential elements that a new workers needs to know about and that employers need to document covering. In addition to WHMIS, this course covers:

– Safety laws, rights and responsibilities

– Protecting yourself from workplace hazards

– Personal Protective Equipment

This online training is available from any device and is available to workers and contractors before they enter the work site. It assists busy employers avoid compliance fines, incidents, and legal risk, and sets the tone for a commitment to safety in new staff. WHMIS + helps to address training consistency issues caused by staff turnover by being available on-demand 24/7 and ensuring that all training is documented.

But there is another way you can increase training efficiency and make this course dramatically more valuable by delivering your own company policies and procedures within it…


CUSTOMIZE: In order to customize and make specific the training being delivered to your workers, company best practices / standard operating procedures (or other related PDF’s / videos) can be inserted to this course, and an acknowledgment of their understanding required from students. This allows you to conveniently deliver customized site-specific training with this course. It’s organized, it’s online, it’s efficient, it’s all documented and nothing get missed when someone moves on to another job.

Best practices / standard operating procedures can change often, are often difficult to deliver and keep track of, and are often left sitting in binders on the shelf. Could delivering them with initial training and periodic retraining be a better option for your organization?
