Description

The federal Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) legislation was amended February 11, 2015 to align with the Globally Harmonized System for Classifying and Labelling Chemicals (GHS). Alberta will amend the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Code, Part 29 to be consistent with the federal legislation. In the interim, this bulletin is intended to provide Alberta employers and workers with guidance on complying with WHMIS until the provincial OHS legislation is amended.
