Health Canada’s WHMIS 2015, a GHS-Aligned System

Health Canada’s GHS-aligned hazcom standard, WHMIS 2015, involves a gradual phase-in, culminating in the complete adoption of a GHS-aligned system. The phase-in of the new GHS-aligned hazcom standard will be complete by December of 2018. Once adopted, the new standard is intended to function in close harmony with the U.S. version. This lecture provides an overview of Canada GHS and the considerations needed in order to be compliant with it.
