What is WHMIS 2015

WHMIS 2015 is a globally recognized standard for communicating the hazards associated with workplace hazardous chemicals.  It is an approach to provide consistency when classifying chemicals and hazards using labels and safety data sheets (SDS).  The intention is to lower costs by reducing retraining and the reclassification of workplace hazardous chemicals within different regions.

  • The labelling now includes the new hazard classes.
  • Consistent hazard criteria with the TDG regulations.
  • Standardized terminology around hazards and precautionary statements.
