How do I implement the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) in my workplace?
The WHMIS Regulation under the Occupational Health and Safety Act applies to all workplaces where chemicals or other hazardous materials are used in the workplace. WHMIS requires an employer to ensure that:
• All chemical containers in the workplace are properly labeled,
• All chemicals/hazardous materials that are WHMIS-regulated have a safety data sheet available that contains more detailed safety information, and
• All employees who use the chemicals are trained in WHMIS and how to work with the chemicals safely
Employees should talk to their managers about how WHMIS is implemented in their workplace.
