Why do you need safety training?
The purpose of WHMIS is to reduce injuries or diseases caused by exposure to hazardous materials used in the workplace.
Every person working with or near controlled products has the right to know the hazards and how to safely use the products.
Workplace Safety Legislation
In Canada, we have Federal legislation that deals with importation and sale of controlled products:
- The Federal Hazardous Products Act and the Controlled Products Regulations list the requirements for including products in WHMIS.
- The Hazardous Materials Information Review Act established a Commission to review and validate trade secret claims.
Provincial legislation covers the use of hazardous material in the workplace under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation.
Three Key Elements
- Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
- Worker Education and Training
