WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System.
WHMIS was created to reduce injuries, illness and deaths associated with working with hazardous materials in the workplace. These hazardous materials that come under the umbrella of WHMIS are also referred to as ‘controlled products’.
Any controlled product that is used must be appropriately labelled, must have a corresponding Material Safety Data Sheet, or MSDS, and must be used only by people who have been properly trained.
The program covers the following areas:
* Classes of Controlled Products
* Hazard Symbols
* Material Safety Data sheets
* How Hazardous Materials can hurt us
WHMIS supplies us with access to knowledge about controlled products that we use.
Combining this knowledge with established safe work procedures is the best way we can avoid accidents, injuries and illness associated with the use of hazardous materials.
