Do WHMIS certificate expire?

WHMIS certificates do expire at some point. What this means is that the whole reason someone would want to have a WHMIS certificate is to show evidence that they have completed a WHMIS training course or passed a whmis knowledge test. If you tell someone you completed and passed a whmis test yesterday they can have more confidence that you are knowledgeable on WHMIS , than someone whole tells they completed a whmis test 10 years ago.

So at what point would someone not accept a WHMIS certificate? There is not set answer to this question as it will depend on who is being asked the question. WHMIS legislation applies across Canada and it is the provincial WHMIS authority in each province that enforces WHMIS. Which means a safety inspector can require an employer to show that their employees are knowledgeable on WHMIS. When the employer can produce training and testing records over a series of years it builds a good case that these employees have been trained and whmis tested and are knowledgeable on WHMIS.

You may also be required to produce proof of WHMIS training when you work contract work or are working on another company’s job site or location. This is the reason some people want to have a wallet size whmis card. A WHMIS card makes it easy to show this as workers go from one job site to another location.

When people ask this question, it is usually because someone has asked if they understand WHMIS, or are knowledgeable on WHMIS. And in the case where they are a contract worker or starting a new job they may be wondering is my WHMIS expired. They may be required to have completed a WHMIS training course within the past year.

What does a WHMIS certificate do? When you pass a WHMIS test, other people can use that as a sign that you understand the material and test questions. When you get your Driver’s License it is a sign that you have completed a driver’s test and understand things like how to read traffic signs and the rules of the road.

What is important on a WHMIS certificate? A certificate should include the trainee or employee’s full name, a date of completion, a test score or indication if a test was completed, an issuing company or training provider who can be contacted to attest to the validity of the certificate or answer questions on the training and testing process.
