Q and A

What's the difference between WHMIS 2015 (2016 Edition) and GHS WHMIS 2015 (2017 Edition)?

The 2016 Edition is based on the current WHMIS 2015 regulations and was developed for the transition period. When employers may have a need to train employees to be able to work with products that are labelled to both the new WHMIS 2015 and old WHMIS 1988 regulations. This takes into consideration that some workplaces would have a mix of products labelled with WHMIS 1988 labels and have an MSDS, and some products with WHMIS 2015 labels have an SDS. 

The 2017 Edition is based on current WHMIS 2015 regulations and was developed for workplaces where there are only products with WHMIS 2015 labels. The course outline includes a module on reading the 16 sections of an SDS.
