Chemicals can kill!
Mon, Mar-11-24

Thousands of chemicals are used in Ontario workplaces everyday.  Health effects can range from mild irritation to death.

Getting Started - How does your workplace stack up?
  • Have all chemicals been identified and the risks assessed? 
  • Do you know what regulations apply to your chemicals such as for designated substances? 
  • Are adequate chemical control programs in place? 
  • Are supplier and workplace labels used to identify the chemicals at work? 
  • Are up-to-date material safety data sheets (MSDSs) available to workers for the chemicals in the workplace? 
  • Is WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) training provided for all employees and reviewed annually? 
  • Are written procedures for the use, handling, storage and disposal of chemicals available to, understood and followed by workers? 
  • Does everyone know what to do in a chemical emergency such as a spill or a fire? 
  • Is personal protective equipment in good condition and used properly? 
  • Are incidents, injuries and illnesses investigated to find and eliminate the root cause?
