A WHMIS GHS program is required in all Northwest Territories 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 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 The Northwest Territories, these requirements are set out in the Work Site Hazardous Magerials Information System Regulations of The North-West Territories and Nunavut Safety Act. The Department of Education, Culture and Employment provides territorial enforcement of the WHMIS GHS regulations.
