New guideline effective April 30, 2015
This is a directory of occupational health and safety training providers in B.C. that conduct training in a wide variety of health and safety topics, ranging from responsibilities of joint health and safety committee members, to WHMIS, to forklift operation. This directory is searchable by geographical location and provides links to the providers' websites. It also contains links to training administered by third parties, such as occupational first aid, crane operation, manual falling, S-100, and commercial diving.
The changes to WHMIS result in new standardized hazard classification criteria, a few new label requirements, and material safety data sheets (MSDS) will be replaced by safety data sheets (SDS).
