Chemical Safety: It’s More Than WHMIS
Presenter: Robert Hallsworth
Date & Time: Thursday, December 5, 2019, 1-2pm Eastern Time
Chemicals are used in 96 percent of manufactured materials and products; yet these same chemicals can be the cause of occupational disease. WHMIS was developed to help companies manage this conundrum. But our focus on WHMIS compliance activities such as updating data sheets means chemical safety is usually ignored.
This webinar looks at some common myths surrounding WHMIS and how they prevent us from making good use of this valuable tool. It shows what a true Management System focused on chemical safety would look like. Data from a variety of organizations is used in describing the Management System, showing examples of the results achieved for each step of the process. Finally, a case study is used to provide a comprehensive overview of what can be accomplished if we viewed WHMIS as the foundation of chemical safety not just an exercise in document management.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Understand the gaps in your current practices around WHMIS
- Explain how an alternate process that builds on existing activities can improve chemical safety
- Observe the results of an organization that followed the process and improved chemical safety
