Education has worked with the ministry of Labour to understand the implications of the recent changes to the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) for school authorities. CTS and CTF resources are available in the “Update Documents” folder.
A three-year transition period will allow suppliers and employers to implement the changes. The training of workers must be site-specific and deal with specific products and procedures used in the workplace. Complete information about the changes is available from WHMIS.org: Canada’s National WHMIS Portal.
