In February 2015, Canada’s Hazardous Products Regulation modified the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, commonly referred to as WHMIS, to incorporate the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals for workplace chemicals. This modified WHMIS is now known as WHMIS 2015. This course provides the learner with a survey of hazardous chemical labels, pictograms and the Safety Data Sheet (SDS). While WHMIS 2015 includes new harmonized criteria for hazard classification and requirements for labels and SDS, the roles and responsibilities for suppliers, employers and workers have not changed (Health Canada, 2015).
