Now available to view and download, this book contains general information about the new WHMIS 2015 program, including a summary of key changes from the original WHMIS program and the three main elements of WHMIS (labels, safety data sheets, and education programs).
Updates to the Workers Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation effective August 4, 2015
The changes to WHMIS result in new standardized hazard classification criteria, a few new label requirements, and material safety data sheets (MSDS) will be replaced by safety data sheets (SDS).
