Cannabis in the Workplace – For Employers
With recreational cannabis legalized in Canada, cannabis use in the workplace is in the spotlight like never before. This course teaches employers about their rights and responsibilities concerning cannabis in the workplace, including what to do if cannabis use is suspected at work, how to recognize the signs of cannabis impairment, and how to accommodate therapeutic cannabis use.
This course introduces you to Canada’s Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, or WHMIS. WHMIS was created in 1988 to help protect workers by educating them about the hazardous materials they may use in their workplace.
This program covers the WHMIS program from its beginning in 1988 to its most recent version – WHMIS 2015. WHMIS 2015 incorporates the United Nation’s Globally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, or GHS.
In this course, you’ll learn about:
* Levels of workplace responsibility
* The transition from WHMIS 1988 to WHMIS 2015
* The labels and hazard symbols used to identify hazardous materials
* Material safety data sheets and safety data sheets
* How to recognize hazardous materials
