This 1/2 day session will help you answer these questions.

    Does your workplace have hazardous products?  Do you know what are the hazards of the products?  Do you      know how to protect yourself from those hazards?  What would you do in case of emergency?  Where can you      get further information? 


WHMIS is better known as WHMIS 2015 since Canada has aligned the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). GHS has not replaced WHMIS. Rather, the original WHMIS, which remained virtually unchanged since 1988, has incorporated GHS elements, resulting in new standardized:

  • classification criteria

  • label requirements

  • safety data sheet (SDS) requirements (formerly material safety data sheet)
