Transition WHMIS – GHS

The WHMIS, effective in Canada since 1998, aims to reduce the incidence of diseases and professional accidents due to the use of hazardous materials in the workplace. WHMIS, as we know, is subjected to major changes since June 2015 and complies with the GHS (Globally Harmonized System) standard used worldwide. This transition will take place over the next 3 years.
