On February 24, 2015, WorkSafeBC’s Board of Directors approved amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation.

These regulatory amendments to the OHSR came into force on the date the consequential amendments to sections 5 and 6 of the Workers Compensation Amendment Act, 2015, Bill 9, came into force. This occurred on August 4, 2015.

These changes harmonize with the Government of Canada’s implementation of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The GHS does not replace WHMIS. The existing WHMIS requirements will align with the GHS elements and are now called WHMIS 2015.

This Course Follows WorkSafeBC Regulations and the Occupational Health & Safety Regulations (OHSR).  Also, Including Canadian Standard Association (CSA) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Visit
