A WHMIS GHS program is required in all Newfoundland and Labrador 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 Newfoundland and Labrador, these requirements are set out in the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Regulations (NF Regulation 1149/96) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The OHS Branch of Service NL is responsible to enforce WHMIS GHS regulations.
