WHMIS & Site-Specific Training

WHMIS Training
It is a legal requirement that everyone working within a laboratory complete a standard WHMIS training session. You should be contacted early in your stay at McMaster concerning the timing of such sessions. In the event you are not specifically informed, it is important that you ensure you register for a training session.
Site-Specific Training
It is the responsibility of each research supervisor (faculty member) to conduct “site-specific” training sessions to acquaint all those working in the laboratory of particular hazards which could be encountered with particular equipment and facilities.
