WHMIS 2015 & the GHS

WHMIS 2015 is now Law and WebWSIT’s New “WHMIS 2015 & the GHS” is available to assign to your employees.

WHMIS 2015 & the GHS will work in conjunction with the “old” WHMIS (1988) until the latter is completely phased out December 1, 2018. It replaces our “GHS Awareness” course.

The phase in starts with manufacturers, importers and suppliers of hazardous products who must comply with labelling and Safety Data Sheet requirements. Employee training follows depending on the arrival of WHMIS 2015 products up to December 1, 2018.

You should ensure your personnel are familiar with WHMIS 2015 in case products arrive at your door with their new classifications, labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS’s).
