Simply so, what is a controlled product?
Under the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), a controlled product: Is any substance that is a compressed gas, or an oxidizing material. A substance that is poisonous, infectious, flammable, combustible, corrosive or dangerously reactive. Meets the criteria in The Controlled Products Regulations.
Subsequently, question is, is Whmis mandatory in Canada? WHMIS is a national program and the basic requirements are the same across Canada. However, individual provinces and territories may have also introduced minor changes while integrating WHMIS with their occupational health and safety regulatory regime.
Furthermore, who enforces Whmis requirements in Canada?
WHMIS is enforced by the Labour Branch of Human Resources Development Canada for federal workplaces and by the provincial or territorial agencies responsible for occupational health and safety for most other workplaces.
Is Whmis transferable between companies?
Generic WHMIS education can apply to any workplace. However, exposure to controlled or hazardous products will depend on the nature of the work.
