July 14: Territory Adopts WHMIS 2015


Yukon has adopted WHMIS 2015, which replaces WHMIS 1988. Employers are responsible for educating and training workers on the new WHMIS regulations. They have three years to be fully compliant with WHMIS 2015, which will be in full effect as of Dec. 1, 2018. But if a hazardous product labelled in accordance with WHMIS 2015 is received in the workplace, the employer must immediately comply with the worker education and training requirements.
