It is a comprehensive system used in Canada to regulate the handling, storage, and communication of hazardous materials in the workplace. WHMIS is designed to ensure that workers have the necessary information and training to safely handle hazardous materials and to protect their health and safety.

Employers are responsible for ensuring that workers who may be exposed to hazardous materials receive appropriate education and training on how to safely handle, store, and dispose of them.

WHMIS is an important regulatory framework that helps to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses related to hazardous materials exposure.

The key components of WHMIS include:

  • Classification: Hazardous materials are classified into categories based on their physical and chemical properties.
  • Labeling: Hazardous materials must be labeled with standardized symbols, called pictograms, along with specific information such as product identifier, hazard statements, and precautionary statements.
  • Safety Data Sheets (SDS): Manufacturers and suppliers are required to provide SDS for hazardous materials, containing detailed information about the hazards, safe handling procedures, emergency measures, and more.
