WHMIS / Safety Data Sheets

Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS 2015)

WHMIS is a Canadian hazard communication program. The purpose of WHMIS is to make sure that you, your supervisor and the University have the information you need to work safely with the hazardous materials at your workplace. The materials that are included in WHMIS are called controlled products. A controlled product is any product that meets the criteria for WHMIS hazard classes. WHMIS specific training will be provided by your department when required.

Following are links to Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for some common controlled products that are used throughout the University:
