WHMIS 2015

WORKPLACE HAZARDOUS MATERIALS INFORMATION SYSTEM – The revised course which incorporates the new GHS – Global Harmonization system.



All Canadian employers and employees, manufacturers and Suppliers that could handle, control or mix dangerous chemicals under specific GHS Classes.


On February 11, 2015, the Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR) was published by the Government of Canada. A new system entitled the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) – is an internationally recognized standard for hazard classification and communication.


The main components of WHMIS are hazard identification and product classification, labelling, safety data sheets, and worker education and training Suppliers, Distributors and Manufacturers have new requirements for Supplier Labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS). The WHMIS 2015 legislation is currently in force. “In force” means that suppliers may begin to  follow the new requirements for labels and safety data sheets (SDSs) for hazardous products sold, distributed, or imported into Canada


Employers must train personnel in the new WHMIS 2015 program, which includes Pictograms and  Hazard warnings and SDS.


When a hazardous product is used in the workplace, employers are required to:

  • Train workers on the hazards and safe use of products.
  • Ensure that  WHMIS  hazardous products are properly labelled.
  • Prepare workplace labels, as needed when Supplier labels aren’t available.
  • Prepare SDSs, as necessary (e.g., if an employer manufactures a hazardous product that is used on their work-site).
  • Provide access to up-to-date SDSs (16 sections) to workers.
  • Ensure appropriate control measures are in place to protect the health and safety of workers as per OHS regulations.


Employee requirements include:

Workers will participate in WHMIS education and training programs, take necessary steps to protect themselves and their co-workers, and participate in identifying and controlling chemical  hazards.


Aligning with GHS provides many benefits, including:

  • Hazard classification criteria are more comprehensive which improves  the indication of the severity of hazards.
  • New hazard classes are included on the labels.
  • Physical hazard criteria are now consistent with the Transport of Dangerous Goods (TDG regulations).
  • Standardized language (hazard and precautionary statements).
  • Standardized SDS format and more comprehensive details


Duration: Up to half day

Prerequisite:  None
