Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System is known by the acronym WHMIS. It was created by the Canadian government to establish guidelines for communicating dangerous items. This implies that everything, including danger classifications, container labelling, and the format for material safety data sheets (also known as MSDS or SDS), are uniformly standardized across the nation. A requirement for worker education programmes on hazardous materials is set forth by WHMIS.
According to Canadian law, everybody who works with hazardous materials must receive training in the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS). The new Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling for Chemicals (GHS), which was implemented in 2015, is covered in this extensive WHMIS 2015 course. It also includes material from the earlier WHMIS system (WHMIS 1988).
Employees are accountable for attending WHMIS safety training, taking the appropriate precautions to protect themselves and their coworkers, and correctly identifying and managing hazardous materials. The responsibility for making sure hazardous materials are properly labelled, having SDSs on hand, and providing information and training regarding the products in the workplace is on the employer.
