WHMIS 2015

WHMIS 2015 (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System)

In February 2015, the Government of Canada published Part II of the Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR) which modified WHMIS 1988 to incorporate GHS for workplace chemicals. This modified WHMIS is referred to as WHMIS 2015 and requires Manufacturers, Importers, and Employers to update all Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) to the new standard.
