Hazardous material labels

Course of the Week: WHMIS Certification

Mishandling hazardous materials on the job can have severe consequences, both for your workers and your bottom line. Penalties can range from $10,000 to $1 million in fines, as well as up to two years in prison. Fortunately, regulations such as Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) exist to ensure employees are kept safe through proper labeling of materials and training programs.
