Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) training is available only for Université Laval members. This includes employees and University research team members, such as students or postdoctoral fellows. Also included are the members of affiliated research centers located in some Quebec City hospitals.
This training is mandatory if you maybe expose to hazardous products in your works. It is also required to access all sites where hazardous materials are located and, in some cases, to activate the payment of your wages at Université Laval.
Important note : as a result of regulatory amendments to WHMIS, all persons who may be exposes to a hazardous product must, before December 1, 2018, follow this new version of the WHMIS training. This obligation applies to both current and newcomers. With the new regulations (sect. 29, RIPD), the training will now have to be renewed every 5 years.
