Chemicals in the workplace can present a wide variety of hazards.
WHMIS is a national hazard communication system that provides information on the safe use of hazardous products used, handled or stored in Canadian workplaces.
WHMIS was developed to ensure that workers receive hazard information about materials that are used at their work sites in an effort to help reduce the workplace injuries caused by these hazardous materials.
People who come into contact with hazardous chemicals at work need to know how to keep themselves, their co-workers, the general public and the environment safe from harm.
