Product Description

CCOHS worked in collaboration with the Workplace Hazardous Materials Directorate of Health Canada (formerly the National Office of WHMIS) to develop a series of 24 WHMIS Fact Sheets. These eye-catching, informative Fact Sheets are written in clear-language, are widely used for workplace training and are ideal for printing and posting in the workplace.

The Fact Sheets are organized under three categories: WHMIS Basics; Hazard Topics; and Workplace Controls. They include topics such as: What is WHMIS; WHMIS A Shared Responsibility; Classes of WHMIS-Controlled Products; The Hazard Symbols of WHMIS; Education and Training Requirements.

WHMIS Fact Sheets are available in PDF in both English and French and can be obtained by contacting CCOHS Client Services. Be sure to specify which category of Fact Sheets you would like.
