WHMIS Training 2018
ATCA previously held WHMIS training courses in Edmonton and Calgary. WHMIS Certification is a requirement of the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Code and a must for both owners and all staff that come into contact with hazardous chemicals – in the case of processing units this means ALL who work in the shop or factory. There have also been some substantial changes to the Code to bring it into line with the Globally Harmonised System for classifying and labelling chemicals – These now necessitate re-certification of all personnel. To help members meet this new requirement, the Association arranged training and certification courses in Calgary in November 2016 and in Edmonton in March 2017 . No courses are currently planned but it is intended to hold a training for trainers on this topic in 2018, if there is sufficient demand.
