Whats New in 2019

Posted by Kelvin Scott on

A new year means new regulations that may affect your industry. We've rounded up a few recent and upcoming changes that you should be aware of.

WHMIS 2015

Don't let the name fool you, the deadline for WHMIS 2015 compliance was actually December 1, 2018. WHMIS 2015 incorporates the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) for Canadian Workplaces. GHS has been adopted by many of Canada's trading partners, including the United States.

Check out our selection of WHMIS products with new signal words and pictograms as well as our Hazard Awareness Charts to familiarize yourself with the new standards.
