What is GHS? GHS is global system that defines and classifies the hazards of chemical products and communicates health and safety information on labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) WHMIS 1988 + GHS = WHMIS 2015 WHMIS 1988 + GHS = WHMIS 2015 Federal: WHMIS 2015 is in place Not governed by Controlled Products Regulation

(now it is the new Hazardous Products Regulation) WHMIS 1988 is not off the books we still need to cover it until it is phased out WHMIS 2015 will be fully implemented by Dec 2018 Why the changes? Implementing GHS into Canada will help harmonize Canadas chemical hazard communication system with those of other countries providing more consistent hazard information.

e t c s le t t o b y a r p s There are two situations when a workplace label is not necessary

When a hazardous product is #1. poured into a container and it is going to be used immediately, or #2. "under the control of the person who decanted it". For example, when the person who poured the product into another container will be the only person who will use it, and the product will be used during one shift, a full workplace label may not be required. However, the container must still be identified with the If the product is not used right away or if more than one product identifier (name). person will be in control of the product, a full workplace label is required.

GHS - Environmental Hazard Class (optional) 1. Hazardous to Aquatic Environment 2. Hazardous to Ozone Layer How Chemicals Enter the Body - Route of Entry Common Terms you may encounter on Labels or MSDS/SDS: Acute - Sudden or brief. Acute exposure is a short tem exposure that lasts min/hrs/days. Acute effects occur quickly and can harm the body after one single

exposure. Chronic Long term or prolonged. Chronic exposure is a long term exposure that lasts for months or years. Carcinogen - A substance which can cause cancer. Mutagen - A substance which can cause changes in the DNA of cells (mutations). Teratogen A substance which can cause birth defects. LD50/LC50 Lethal dose or lethal concentration of a material that causes death in 50% of the test animals. Exposure Limits Time and

concentration/ dose that a normal healthy adult can be exposed to before suffering adverse health effects. Combustible - Able to burn. Flash Point - The lowest temperature at which a liquid or solid gives off enough vapour to form a flammable air-vapour mixture near its surface. The lower the flash point, the greater the fire hazard.

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD RISKS: Toxic to the environment and aquatic life if contents should enter the environment PRECAUTIONS: Ensure container is secured/closed Ensure proper disposal, do not pour into sink or allow to spill near sewers/drains Store in appropriate designated areas What is an MSDS/SDS? A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) or SDS is a document that: -

contains information on the potential hazards (health, fire, reactivity and environmental) and how to work safely with the chemical product - contains information on the use, storage, handling and emergency procedures all related to the hazards of the material - contains much more information about the material than the label -

prepared by the supplier or manufacturer of the material Under WHMIS 2015, SDS will be phased in and replace MSDS by 2018 HAZARD COMMUNICATION: MSDS/SDS WHMIS 1988 WHMIS/GHS 2015 MSDS SDS (Material Safety Data Sheets)
