With the recent announcement of the changes to Canada's Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS 2015), a website has been developed to help Canadians transition from the old WHMIS system to WHMIS 2015 which implements the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).

The website, WHMIS.org - Canada's National WHMIS Portal - provides Canadians with a single point of access to the most current information about WHMIS 2015 from all of the jurisdictions across Canada.

The website also contains helpful tools and resources for workers, employers, suppliers and trainers. The site features WHMIS requirements from Health Canada for manufacturers, distributors and importers as well as WHMIS workplace requirements from every province, territory and the federal Labour program that impact Canadian workplaces.

WHMIS.org will be kept up-todate with current information regarding the status of new and existing WHMIS laws and requirements in each jurisdiction. WHMIS.org is a national resource developed by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) in collaboration with the Workplace Hazardous Materials Bureau of Health Canada (formerly the National Office of WHMIS) and each of the federal, provincial and territorial occupational health and safety regulatory jurisdictions across Canada.
Access the website at:
