A WHMIS GHS program is required in all Nova Scotia workplaces that may have controlled products. Employers must provide workers with information regarding safety and health hazards in their workplaces. Employees have the right to know of potential dangers that can affect their work and health.
WHMIS GHS standards are coordinated between three levels of government: federal, provincial, and territorial. Supplier labeling and MSDS requirements fall under the federal Hazardous Products Act.
Each province and territory establishes WHMIS GHS employer requirements within its own jurisdiction. In Nova Scotia, these requirements are set out in the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Regulations (N.S. Reg. 64/89) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The Department of Labour and Advanced Education provides provincial enforcement of the WHMIS GHS regulations.
