Canada’s Implementation of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for Workplace Chemicals: Free Webinar

Release Date:  Apr 21, 2014

WHMIS is set to evolve to incorporate the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (or GHS) for workplace chemicals.
 
To help you learn more about the GHS and how it will impact WHMIS, Health Canada, in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), has released a free recorded webinar. This presentation will give you a better understanding of Health Canada's proposed approach to implementing the GHS in Canada and will outline proposed new hazard classification and communication obligations in WHMIS, which will take effect when the GHS is implemented in Canada.
 
This webinar is targeted towards Canadian audiences: WHMIS suppliers (or their representatives) who sell or import hazardous products for use in Canadian workplaces;  as well as employers who manufacture hazardous products for use in their own workplaces.
 
You can learn more about, and register for Canada’s Implementation of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for Workplace Chemicals on the CCOHS website here: http://www.ccohs.ca/products/webinars/ghs_canada/.
