WHMIS 2015 Transition

WHMIS 2015 combines content and practices from the Globally Harmonized System, updating pictogram labels, material safety data sheets, and changing classification requirements.

Roles and responsibility for employers and workers have not changed, but requirements for labels and the SDS have changed.

Implementing the GHS will help keep employers and employees safe. All employees in Canada are required to have WHMIS 2015. For more information on the complete changes, please visit the WHMIS 2015 information page on the Government of Canada website.
