Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Update
WHMIS 2015 is here – As of November 30, 2018 the formal transition period to WHIMS 2015 is completed. That means that organizations must comply with the WHMIS 2015 classification system when hazardous materials are present in the workplace. For complete details, the WHMIS Regulation 860 should be referenced.
During the transition period, PSHSA provided a WHMIS eLearning program that provided information on both the WHMIS 1988 and the WHMIS 2015 classifications systems. As the transition period came to a close, PSHSA has updated our eLearning training program to remove the WHMIS 1988 content. We have also added learner interaction and a gamification element to the WHMIS 2015 eLearning program.
