WHMIS Safety Training for Students

WHMIS-2015 training is required for graduate students working in wet labs as well as undergraduate students performing special research projects, participating in the Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering (SURE) program and/or internship or co-op projects where hazardous materials are used. Upon successful completion of the exam, participants are provided a WHMIS training certificate. To register for a WHMIS course, see the information below.

For professors who wish to include WHMIS training in their undergraduate courses, EHS now offers “WHMIS Lite”, designed to meet the time constraints of a typical lecture slot. It does not include an exam or a certificate, however EHS will provide some WHMIS questions for those professors who wish to include them in their course exams. To request such a course, ehs [at] mcgill.ca (email EHS).
