Labelling for chemicals .MDSS
WHMIS legislation introduced in 1988.
It is an employee’s responsibility to participate in WHMIS safety training, take necessary measures to protect themselves and co-workers, and to properly identify and control hazardous materials. The onus is on the employer to ensure that hazardous materials are properly labelled, to have MSDSs available, and to offer education and training about the products in the workplace.
Anyone working with or around Hazardous Materials are required by law to be WHMIS trained. Our comprehensive WHMIS course has been developed for the training of persons who manufacture, work with, or are in proximity to hazardous materials in the workplace.
When it comes to Health and Safety, Ontario employers require professional staff who are knowledgeable about how to meet regulations of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and who can minimize the high costs associated with accidents and injuries.
