GHS implementation

from the Alberta Government - On February 11, the federal government announced that the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) legislation had been updated to align with the Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).

Although this legislation came into effect Wednesday, there is a transition period during which suppliers and employers will be able to comply with the old (WHMIS 1988) or new (WHMIS 2015) systems. For more information, please refer to Work Safe Alberta's bulletin Changes to WHMIS Legislation, available online at http://work.alberta.ca/documents/OHS-Bulletin-CH009.pdf.
