WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. It’s a mouthful of words, but taking the time to learn it can not only help your resume, but also save you from serious harm,

 

Most Canadians are required to have WHMIS if they are exposed to, or may be in contact with hazardous materials. Which is in accordance with Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). Some might think, “well that won’t affect me, I’m never going to be a rocket scientist!” WRONG! Most cleaning chemicals are regulated by WHMIS, even your local janitor is doing their part on a global stage to keep themselves, the environment, and their coworkers safe.
