WHMIS 2015 GHS Online Training

Canada has aligned WHMIS with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). GHS was developed by the United Nations to establish globally a common set of rules for classifying hazardous products, labels, and a standard format for Safety Data Sheets or SDSs (formerly known as Material Safety Data Sheets or MSDS). GHS does not replace WHMIS. Some of the benefits of aligning with GHS include: Standardized Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), standardized language on hazard and precautionary statements, new hazard classes and more comprehensive hazard classification criteria. Full implementation of WHMIS 2015 is December 1, 2018, when all suppliers and employers are required to be in compliance. The goal of WHMIS is to create a safe and healthy workplace. WHMIS is successful only when suppliers, employers and workers assume their responsibilities.
