WHMIS 2015

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), (or SIMDUT, Système d'information sur les matières dangereuses utilisées au travail in French) is Canada's national workplace hazard communication standard.

On February 11, 2015 the Government of Canada modified WHMIS 1988 to incorporate the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The modified WHMIS is referred to as WHMIS 2015.

Canadian suppliers and employers must be compliant with WHMIS 2015 requirements by December 1, 2018.

Produced in cooperation with the British Columbia Maritime Employers Association (BCMEA) and Algoma Central Corporation, this training video familiarizes Canadian maritime workers with the basics of WHMIS 2015, including how to protect yourself and your co-workers from hazardous products.
