PRIMARY SOURCE

Before you use this tool, you should look at WHMIS & Hazardous Waste: How to Protect Workers for more information.

BENEFITS

Hazardous waste is excluded from some of the WHMIS requirements, including the MSDS requirement. But employers have a duty to protect workers from the dangers posed by hazardous waste in the workplace. So use a waste profile sheet to ensure that workers and others who may come into contact with hazardous waste, such as recycling contractors, know the hazards posed by the waste.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

Use this form to create a profile for your hazardous waste, including its chemical components, physical characteristics, the hazards it poses and appropriate PPE.
