WHMIS at Work

Details

A small handbook of general information about WHMIS - the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. This booklet outlines the responsibilities of suppliers and employers with regard to proper labelling of controlled products and the need for accompanying material safety data sheets. It also discusses classes of hazardous materials.

Please note: In 2015, WHMIS was updated to align Canada's system with the U.S. and other major trading partners. WHMIS 1988 is being phased out and by December 1, 2018 only the new WHMIS 2015 will be used.

Until late 2018, workers may encounter WHMIS 1988 and 2015 formats. If the employer uses both systems, workers must also be able to use both.The WorkSafeBC bookstore has two books that introduce the new WHMIS 2015 program, WHMIS 2015 – The Basics and WHMIS 2015 at Work.
