The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is a Canada-wide system developed jointly by labour, industry, and government to provide employers and workers with information about hazardous materials used in the workplace. The regulations affect suppliers, employers, and workers who use, supply or are exposed to hazardous materials.
WHMIS has been implemented across Canada through complimentary federal and provincial legislation. The federal legislation is contained in the Controlled Products Regulations under the Hazardous Products Act. In Ontario the WHMIS regulations are found in Regulation 860 under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The key components of the system include requirements for labels, material safety data sheets and worker training.
OBJECTIVES of WHMIS
1. Identify hazardous materials used in the workplace.
2. Improve hazard communication between suppliers, employers and workers.
3. Protect workers who use hazardous materials.
4. Ensure uniform compliance in all Canadian jurisdictions
