Changes to WHMIS in the Workplace

Employers, Owners, Managers, Supervisors and Safety Committee Members are invited to attend an Occupational Health & Safety Workshop:Changes to WHMIS in the Workplace at Rural Action Centres across the Province.


PEI's provincial WHMIS regulations were updated in July 2017 to reflect the national changes to the Hazardous Products Acts & Regulations. 

 

This FREE Workers Compensation Board of PEI one hour session will offer an overview of the changes and the impact on employers. Employer responsibilities, including education and training of workers, and components to a WHMIS program will also be reviewed.

 

This session will be most suited for businesses that use or sell hazardous products (chemicals).

This information session does not provide WHMIS training or certification for workers.

Please register for this information session, by 12noon the day before, at the Rural Action Centre (RAC) location of your choice:
