ATTENTION HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGERS
According to WorkSafeBC, employers are responsible for educating their workers to ensure that they understand WHMIS and the hazards of the controlled products they work with or near. Education programs about WHMIS must be followed up with job-specific training in safe work procedures for handling, storing, and disposing of these controlled products. Workers must also be trained in emergency procedures in the event of an accident or spill.
