Does WHMIS Training Expire?
There is a misconception that providing WHMIS training once is enough, be that one time or on an ongoing basis. The problem is that training effectiveness can vary and watching a video or reading a binder may work for some and not others. There is no real way to show it’s effectiveness. Which is why WHMIS testing is so important. WHMIS testing provides the due diligence that shows the worker was knowledgeable at a given point in time. The question is how frequently should you retrain and retest, ideally every year but maybe you can go every two years, you need to check with your provincial department of labour or workplace safety and health. Each provincial department can give you direction for your provincial interpretation and your business.
