Resources for Canadian GHS Implementation from CCOHS

Hazmat GHS labels
As in the US, Canada's national chemical classification and hazard communication standard for workplace chemicals is changing. The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is set to evolve in order to incorporate the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (or GHS) for workplace chemicals. 

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) offers a number of resources related to GHS implementation, including posters, fact sheets, on-line courses, and a new on-demand webinar, Canada’s Implementation of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for Workplace Chemicals. The webinar is designed for WHMIS suppliers (or their representatives) who sell or import hazardous products for use in Canadian workplaces. This presentation will also be of interest to employers who manufacture hazardous products for use in their own workplaces.
