WHMIS 2015 CLASSIFICATION training - GHS 7th Edition


This training is given by experienced chemists and is intended for anyone responsible for producing Safety Data Sheets (SDS or formerly called Material Safety Data Sheets) and related labels for their company.


Who is this specialized training for?


This WHMIS training is intended for all chemists, biochemists, toxicologists and chemical technicians who wish to be able to adequately evaluate a safety data sheet (SDS) and for those who have to produce SDSs and labels as part of their work. Why take this training? Just in Quebec, approximately 20,000 reported accidents per year are related to the misuse of chemical materials. Several government measures and regulations have been developed to reduce this number. The development of SDSs for hazardous materials is one of the main measures developed by governments to ensure the safe use of hazardous products and reduce the associated hazards. In addition, governments oblige companies that develop chemical mixtures to produce an SDS that complies with the standards in force. The information found on these sheets becomes a reference for the safe use of the product. An erroneous SDS represents a risk of danger for all users. Inaccurate information regarding spills or disposal of the product (chemical residue management) also represents a risk for the environment.


Improving on classification of dangerous products is a way to prevent chemical accidents and, as chemical professionals, it is our duty to contribute to making our workplaces safer at this level. Are you able to identify hazardous compounds in a chemical mixture or formulation? Did you know that a large proportion of SDSs are incorrect? Would you be able to recognize them? Do you know where to find the missing information on an SDS to intervene more effectively in your workplaces? Hazard assessment begins with knowing the risks associated with a hazardous product. Do you know the tests to assess the physical hazards of a chemical compound? Do you know the databases used to collect information on the health hazards of a chemical mixture? Do you know the legal repercussions of an incorrect SDS? Would you be able to produce a complete SDS that complies with current standards?

We cover the following topics:


  • Background
  • Definitions
  • Perks
  • Physical hazards classification
  • Health hazards classification
  • Acute Toxicity Assessment (ATE) mixtures calculations
  • Label authoring
  • SDS authoring
  • Mixture classification exercises


We privilege enjoyable learning with the help of games and didactic material. Each participant will receive a training booklet for future reference and a training certificate.
