VIDEO: How is WHMIS changing in 2015?

WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System – and it’s being updated, with the first changes starting in June 2015.

Occupational Health and Safety Regulation changes, effective August 4, 2015, including changes to:

* Hazard classes and categories
* Pictograms and labels
* Safety data sheets (formerly known as MSDSs)

This video from WorkSafeBC – presented in the format of a dramatic movie trailer – will tell you more, along with this information from WorkSafeBC and these WHMIS fact sheets from the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety.
