WHMIS Compliance

What Every Employer Needs To Know

WHMIS is short for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. It is one of the most common health and safety programs in Canada becuase it applies to all Employers. The intent of the regulations are to protect worker safety.

It's not too late to do something about it, until something happens, and then it's to late to do something to prevent it.

We Belive In Safety, it is what we have in common with every Client we work with. We know the value of education and training, the value of ensuring workers are aware of the hazards in their workplace, and the value of being in compliance with the regulations in the workplace.

As an Employer, what are my duties under the WHMIS regulations?

An Employer in charge or with responsibility for a workplace has three duties under WHMIS:

  1. to ensure Hazardous Products are correctly labelled and the hazards identified
  2. to obtain Safety Data Sheets and Material Safety Data Sheets for hazardous products
