The Infrastructure Health & Safety Association (IHSA) works with employers and workers in Ontario to eliminate occupational injury and illness. It serves the aggregates, construction, electrical, natural gas, ready-mix concrete, transportation, and utilities industries.
The law requires that every worker exposed to hazardous products in the workplace be trained in Canada's Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. The WHMIS Regulation (search word WHMIS) also requires that this training be updated annually.
This site is designed to help you revisit the training you received through your employer. It provides a brief introduction to WHMIS, then reviews labels and material safety data sheets. Updating of workplace-specific education and training must be carried out by the employer.
A new regulation will require health and safety awareness training for every worker and supervisor under Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). The regulation came into force July 1, 2014.
