Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) 2015
A WHMIS 2015 GHS program is required in all Canadian workplaces that may have controlled products. Employers must provide workers with information regarding safety and health hazards in their workplaces. Every employee has the right to know of potential dangers that can affect their work and health.
WHMIS GHS standards are coordinated between three levels of government: federal, provincial, and territorial. Supplier labeling and MSDS ( SDS-Safety data sheet) requirements fall under the federal Hazardous Products Act.
On February 11, 2015, the Government of Canada published in the Canada Gazette, Part II the Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR), which, in addition to the amendments made to the Hazardous Products Act under the Economic Action Plan 2014 Act, No.1, modified the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) 1988 to incorporate the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) for workplace chemicals. This modified WHMIS is referred to as WHMIS 2015. The Controlled Products Regulations (CPR) and the Ingredient Disclosure List have been repealed.
While WHMIS 2015 includes new harmonized criteria for hazard classification and requirements for labels and safety data sheets (SDS), the roles and responsibilities for suppliers, employers and workers have not changed.
Suppliers, defined as persons who, in the course of business, sell or import a hazardous product, will continue to:
- identify whether their products are hazardous products; and,
- prepare labels and SDSs and provide these to purchasers of hazardous products intended for use in a workplace.
Employers will continue to:
- educate and train workers on the hazards and safe use of hazardous products in the workplace;
- ensure that hazardous products are properly labelled;
- prepare workplace labels and SDSs (as necessary); and,
- ensure appropriate control measures are in place to protect the health and safety of workers.
Workers will continue to:
- participate in WHMIS and chemical safety training programs;
- take necessary steps to protect themselves and their co-workers; and,
- participate in identifying and controlling hazards.
2-Hour Training Session
Employers must ensure that workers are trained on hazardous products before they use them. The type and amount of training will depend on whether a product is new to the workplace and/or newly classified as a hazardous product.
This 2 hour training session will provide the attendees with the following:

- Hazard symbols and meanings
- How to store flammable materials safely
- What is OEL (Occupational exposure levels), TLV and STEL?
