WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. The Ontario Ministry of Labour requires all employers to have their employees trained in the new GHS WHMIS system, this is the new Global System that has been developed in order to have one common system to be used by all, Globally. Employers are required to have their employees trained when they will be exposed to chemicals and or substances that can potentially be dangerous.
