WHMIS 2015 IS HERE– Tens of thousands of Canadian businesses are affected by the regulations. Employee re-training is required.
WHMIS 2015 sets a new standard for hazardous products communication. It aligns Canada with the UN’s Globally Harmonized Standard, or GHS.
Employee re-training is required by law to help workers understand how WHMIS 2015 differs from WHMIS 1988, including:
- New hazard pictograms
- New product labelling
- New safety data sheets, or SDSs
