WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System and provides a guide for identifying hazardous materials found in workplaces. This ensures workers know what dangers exist and how to handle, store, and dispose of hazardous materials.
A WHMIS Program consists of safety data sheets (SDS), product labels, and worker education programs.
WHMIS continues to evolve. For current information on WHMIS, including general information, posters, education and training requirements and courses, visit:
