WHMIS 2015

Are you ready for the June deadline?

In 2015, Canada adopted the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling (GHS) and began the transition from WHMIS 1988 to WHMIS 2015. Similar to the OSHA HazCom transition of HCS 2012, the new regulation updates hazard communication to workers in the workplace and includes requirements to provide education and training to all employees.

To help you with the transition and ensure compliance with the changing regulations and deadlines, SiteHawk has developed WHMIS 2015 informational resources, outlining key updates, requirements and timelines, and training course material to ensure compliance and educate employees about the important changes in the transition to WHMIS 2015.
