Are you tired of having to schedule classroom style training sessions and facing hours, or days, of employee downtime? Has your company had to resort to down-sizing as a result of the current recession? Are you incredibly busy trying to cope with the regular responsibilities of your job, and the numerous other functions that you seem to have inherited? Are you unable to find the time to coordinate these training sessions? If so – you are not alone.
In today’s tough economic times, many health and safety managers are looking online for a way to save money on WHMIS training. In addition to the time costs of coordinating the training for multiple employees in a business, there are the out of pocket costs.

Classroom Training Facts:
A typical group WHMIS classroom training session will usually last 4-6 hours. This is 4-6 hours of lost productivity. In the classroom setting, each trainee tends to move along at the speed of the slowest person, rather than at their own pace. There are piles of papers to organize, re-tests to schedule, certificates to issue – not to mention the high cost of bringing in an outside trainer. Also, if your company experiences high employee turnover, this could mean multiple training sessions per year.
