WHMIS/Laboratory Safety Training

Provincial Health and Safety legislation requires that Memorial ensure the health and safety of its employees and students. All students enrolled in chemistry courses will be exposed to chemicals and therefore are required to complete WHMIS/Laboratory Safety Training using the Desire2Learn system at DELTS ( which is available from August 18 to September 17. Students who successfully complete the training must print the certificate showing that the program was successfully completed and must show it to their laboratory instructor at their first laboratory session of all of their chemistry courses.

In order to have access to the online course, students must first register for SFTY 1000, CRN 57267, through Memorial Self-Service. No tuition is charged for this course. Students can then log into Desire2Learn with their login ID and access the courses; access will be available within 24 hours of completion of the registration. Students must provide verification that they have successfully completed the WHMIS and Laboratory safety courses to their lab instructor or supervisor prior to the start of laboratory classes.
