Legislated since 1988 in Ontario, ALL workers which may come into contact or work with hazardous materials must have this training and receive an annual review. WHMIS is a nation hazard communication system that provides information on safe usage of hazardous materials in a workplace.
In 2015 the traditional WHMIS program was amended to what is referred to as a Globally Harmonized System (GHS). This means WHMIS training is consistent across the world. This program is designed to teach participants the new practices and procedures when working with or around hazardous material.
The Ontario regulations for WHMIS can be found in Regulation 860-WORKPLACE HAZARDOUS MATERIALS INFORMATION SYSTEM (WHMIS) of the OHSA.
