CCOHS has worked in partnership with the Workplace Hazardous Materials Directorate of Health Canada (formerly the National Office of WHMIS) to develop a series of WHMIS After GHS Fact Sheets. These information sheets are a part of CCOHS’ free WHMIS After GHS e-courses. These Fact Sheets will be updated in the future.
These sheets promote awareness about anticipated changes to WHMIS after GHS. GHS stands for the Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, which is being implemented into laws by countries world-wide.
The WHMIS After GHS Fact Sheets include an Overview; Information for Suppliers and Importers; Information for Employers; Symbols/Pictograms and Their Hazards; Supplier Labels After GHS; Safety Data Sheets.
All WHMIS After GHS Fact Sheets are available in both English and French.
These draft WHMIS After GHS Fact Sheets were developed to raise awareness about the anticipated changes which may be coming to WHMIS after GHS is implemented in Canada. These sheets were developed as part of the free WHMIS After GHS e-courses.
