GHS: What You Need To Know
GHS has been adopted into law in Canada
On February 11, 2015, the Government of Canada published the Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR). The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), Canada’s national hazard communication standard, is changing to incorporate the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) – an internationally recognized standard for hazard classification and communication.
Now that GHS is adopted in Canada, what do I need to do?
You can now start training with WHMIS 2015 which incorporates the Globally Harmonized System.
What happens to my (or my employees’) existing WHMIS course?
Students granted the WHMIS course prior to March 1, 2015 will still have access to the WHMIS 1998 material. WHMIS exam scores and WHMIS certificates will remain in the student’s training history. There is a transition period from June 1, 2015 to December 1, 2018; this means that employees must have WHMIS 2015 training completed by December 1, 2018.
