What are the differences between WHMIS and WHMIS 2015?
- The original Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) laws were put in place in 1988 to plan for providing information on the safe use of hazardous materials used in Canadian workplaces.
- WHMIS was updated in 2015 to meet the standards of the GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals)
- Under WHMIS 2015, “controlled products” are called “hazardous products”
- WHMIS 2015 has new rules for classifying hazardous workplace chemicals;
- There are now two main hazard classes – physical hazards and health hazards
- There are now new label requirements, including pictograms instead of symbols
- There is now a different format for safety data sheets
- The key responsibilities of suppliers, employers and workers are the same under WHMIS 2015.
