Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)

Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)

If you supply chemicals to the Canadian market, you must now comply with WHMIS.

Canada has a new standard for (Material) Safety Data Sheets. The new standard (WHMIS 2015) is based on the United Nations’ GHS standard, which is currently in use in the US.

Send us your old MSDS, and we’ll convert it to WHMIS 2015 standards!
