Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)

Hazardous materials may cause serious health problems in workers or fires or explosions in the workplace. WHMIS provides information on hazardous products, as defined and described in the federal Hazardous Products Act and Hazardous Products Regulations, so workers can protect themselves. While WHMIS was updated in 2015, responsibilities for employers, workers, and others remain unchanged.

Managers, can you and your staff answer these questions?

  • What are the hazards of the hazardous product(s) we use regularly?
  • How are you protected from those hazards?
  • What do you do in case of an emergency?
  • Where can you get further hazard information?
