The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) are laws that were created in 1988. In 2015, WHMIS changed a number of standards in order to become a part of part of the Globally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
As of December 1st, 2018 the transition to WHMIS 2015 must be complete for all manufacturers, importers distributors, suppliers and employers. There should be no hazardous products in the workplace with old WHMIS labels and safety data sheets.
Please view the information page which includes a section on employee training and the WHIMS site. Check to see if the updated regulations are relevant to your business and familiarize yourself and your staff with the pertinent changes.
