Q. What is WHMIS?

A. WHMIS is Canada's national hazard communication system. Its prime objective is to provide relevant safety and health information to Canadian workers so that they can take the necessary precautions to avoid injury, illness and premature death. The key elements of WHMIS are cautionary labelling, MSDSs and worker education and training programs. WHMIS ensures that employers have adequate information about hazardous materials being used in the workplace so that they can meet their legal obligations under F/P/T OSH legislation to provide a safe workplace. WHMIS addresses both the workers' right-to-know the identity and hazards of workplace chemicals and the need for industry to protect confidential business information.
