WHMIS – Right to Know
Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is a Canada-wide legal framework that applies to suppliers, employers and workers so they can identify and safely manage hazardous materials in the workplace. Legislated by federal, provincial and territorial jurisdictions, it is founded on the workers’ fundamental ‘right to know’ about materials they are using. Under WHMIS employers and suppliers must provide information regarding hazardous materials in three main ways:1. Have container labels for all hazardous materials in the workplace 2. Provide Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) to workers so they have information about hazards and precautions for hazardous materials used in the workplace.
