What are the three main changes coming to WHMIS in the next couple of years?
Be sure to check out the video for this Q&A below!
Corie: So, three of the main changes that are coming up have to do mostly with labeling. Supplier labels and workplace labels, as well as the move from an MSDS system. So, Material Safety Data Sheet system over to a Safety Data Sheet system, an SDS system which is required by the GHS, or Globally Harmonized System. Those would probably be the three biggest things that I think that we are seeing in changes, right?
Tracey: Pictograms: totally changes the structure of it. And the SDS and the supplier label.
Corie: The SDS is much more comprehensive, compared to the SDS as well, right?
Tracey: A lot easier to read for the person in the workplace, and very user-friendly.
