July 31: WHMIS 2015 Amendments Now in Effect


Amendments aligning Manitoba’s Workplace Safety and Health Regulation with new federal WHMIS 2015 have been brought into force, effective immediately. New provisions under Part 35 of the regulation apply to any hazardous product classified and labelled under WHMIS 2015. Employers must ensure that hazardous products received at the workplace have the corresponding label and MSDS/SDS and that workers are trained for the version(s) of WHMIS being used in their workplaces.
