Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System Requirements
Printable Version Printable Version

All students in the Bachelor of Architectural Studies (BAS), Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc), or Bachelor of Software Engineering (BSE) programs, indeed all students taking courses offered by the Faculty of Engineering, must have appropriate instruction on issues of safety. The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) training satisfies this requirement. Except for students in the 1A term registered in the Faculty of Engineering, this requirement must be satisfied by the end of the first week of lectures of the term, or the student's enrolment in Engineering courses will be cancelled. The requirement is satisfied by obtaining a milestone for WHMIS training, which need only be obtained once. Milestone may be granted upon producing evidence that appropriate training has been undertaken elsewhere. For those who do not have a WHMIS milestone, they must arrange for the necessary instruction and evaluation.

For students in their 1A term in a BASc or BSE program, the WHMIS requirement will normally be met as part of their instruction during the 1A term. It is the student's responsibility, however, to obtain this training. For students who are admitted at an advanced level, a condition of admission will be that the WHMIS milestone be obtained by the end of the first week of lectures for the first term of study in the program; the milestone can be obtained as described in the above paragraph.

WHMIS training is offered to all incoming 1A Architecture students. This requirement must be satisfied by the end of the first month of the 1A term, or the student's enrolment in courses will be cancelled. The requirement is satisfied by obtaining a milestone for WHMIS training, which need only be obtained once. WHMIS training is offered to all incoming 1A Architecture students during the first two weeks of term. Milestone may be granted upon producing evidence that appropriate training has been undertaken elsewhere. For those who do not have a WHMIS milestone, they must arrange for the necessary instruction and evaluation.
