WHMIS changed in 2015 to be based on a new Globally Harmonized System. It is now called WHMIS GHS or it is sometimes referred to as WHMIS 2015. (The old system of labelling was referred to as WHMIS 1988)
As of June 1, 2017, chemical producers have been required to put the new GHS labels on products. Products with the old WHMIS 1988 standards can continue to be used by employers until November 30, 2018. After that date, only products with the new WHMIS GHS labels can be used in a work place.
Currently, training is required in WHMIS GHS. Unfortunately, WHMIS GHS training is no longer available for free and so there is no longer a link to it from our website. However below is some info that is free and may be of interest.
