WHMIS TO GHS TRANSITION
In February 2015, the Government of Canada officially announced the specifics of its gradual transition from the WHMIS hazard communication standard to the GHS (Globally Harmonized System) with projected complete adoption by December 2018.
GHS is a hazard communication standard developed by an international team of experts with the goal of establishing a global standard for classifying hazards and formatting labels and safety data sheets.
Until the transition is complete, employees will need training on both the WHMIS and GHS systems. After the transition period is over, material safety data sheets (MSDSs) and labels for products originating within and outside of Canada will be globally standardized to simplify education and training.
