or thing that may be dangerous to the health and safety of workers. Biological hazards Chemical hazards Physical hazards Psychologic al hazards 17
Hazard Classification WHMIS 1988 vs. WHMIS 2015 New hazard class names for example, Class A (Compressed Gases) is now Gases under Pressure New classification rules or criteria A few new hazard classes for example, Aspiration Hazard 18 Hazard Groups
19 Physical Hazards Group Based on the physical or chemical properties of the product. Such as: flammability, reactivity, or corrosivity to metals. Health Hazards Group Based on the ability of the product to cause a health effect.
Such as: eye irritation, respiratory sensitization, or carcinogenicity 20 Hazard Classes Physical Hazards Hazard Class Main Concerns Flammable gases These four classes cover products that have the ability to ignite (catch fire) easily and the main hazards are fire or explosion. Flammable aerosols
Flammable liquids Flammable solids Oxidizing gases Oxidizing liquids Oxidizing solids These three classes cover oxidizers, which may cause or intensify a fire or cause a fire or explosion. Hazard Classes 21 Physical Hazards Hazard Class Gases under pressure
Main Concerns These gases are hazardous because of the high pressure inside the cylinder or container. The cylinder or container may explode if heated. Refrigerated liquefied gases are very cold and can cause severe cold (cryogenic) burns or injury. 22 Hazard Classes Physical Hazards Hazard Class Self-reactive substances and mixtures Pyrophoric liquids Pyrophoric solids Pyrophoric gases
Main Concerns These products may react on their own to cause a fire or explosion, or may cause a fire or explosion if heated. These products can catch fire very quickly (spontaneously) if exposed to air. Hazard Classes 23 Physical Hazards Hazard Class Self-heating substances and mixtures Substances and mixtures which, in
contact with water, emit flammable gases Main Concerns These products may catch fire if exposed to air. These products differ from pyrophoric liquids or solids in that they will ignite only after a longer period of time or when in large amounts. As the class name suggests, these products react with water to release flammable gases. In some cases, the flammable gases may ignite very quickly (spontaneously). Hazard Classes 24
Physical Hazards Hazard Class Organic peroxides Corrosive to metals Combustible dust Simple asphyxiants Main Concerns These products may cause a fire or explosion if heated. These products may be corrosive (chemically damage or destroy) to metals. This class is used to warn of products that are finely divided solid particles. If dispersed in air, the particles may catch fire or explode if ignited. These products may displace oxygen in air
and cause rapid suffocation. Hazard Classes 25 Physical Hazards Hazard Class Physical hazards not otherwise classified Main Concerns This class is meant to cover any hazards that are not covered in any other physical hazard class. These hazards must have the characteristic of occurring by chemical reaction and result in the serious injury or death of a person at the time the reaction
occurs. If a product is classified in this class, the hazard statement on the label and SDS will describe the nature of the hazard. Hazard Classes 26 Health Hazards Hazard Class Main Concern Acute toxicity These products are fatal, toxic or harmful if inhaled, following skin contact, or if swallowed. Acute toxicity refers to effects occurring following skin
contact or ingestion exposure to a single dose, or multiple doses given within 24 hours, or an inhalation exposure of 4 hours. Acute toxicity could result from exposure to the product itself, or to a product that, upon contact with water, releases a gaseous substance that is able to cause acute toxicity. Hazard Classes 27 Health Hazards Hazard Class Skin corrosion/irritation Main Concern This class covers products that cause severe skin
burns (i.e., corrosion) and products that cause skin irritation. Serious eye damage/eye This class covers products that cause serious eye irritation damage (i.e., corrosion) and products that eye irritation. Respiratory or skin sensitization A respiratory sensitizer is a product that may cause allergy or asthma symptoms or breathing difficulties if inhaled. Skin sensitizer is a product that may cause an allergic skin reaction. Hazard Classes 28 Health Hazards Hazard Class
Main Concern Germ cell mutagenicity This hazard class includes products that may cause or are suspected of causing genetic defects (permanent changes (mutations) to body cells that can be passed on to future generations). This hazard class includes products that cause or are suspected of causing cancer. This hazard class includes products that may damage or are suspected of damaging fertility or the unborn child (baby). Carcinogenicity Reproductive toxicity
Note: There is an additional category which includes products that may cause harm to breast-fed children. Hazard Classes 29 Health Hazards Hazard Class Specific target organ toxicity single exposure Specific target organ toxicity repeated exposure Main Concern This hazard class covers products that cause or may cause damage to organs (e.g., liver, kidneys,
or blood) following a single exposure. This class also includes a category for products that cause respiratory irritation or drowsiness or dizziness. This hazard class covers products that cause or may cause damage to organs (e.g., liver, kidneys, or blood) following prolonged or repeated exposure. Hazard Classes 30 Health Hazards Hazard Class Aspiration hazard Bio-hazardous infectious materials
Main Concern This hazard class is for products that may be fatal if they are swallowed and enter the airways. These materials are microorganisms, nucleic acids or proteins that cause or is a probably cause of infection, with or without toxicity, in humans or animals. Hazard Classes 31 Health Hazards Hazard Class Health hazards not otherwise classified
Main Concern This class covers products that are not included in any other health hazard class and have the characteristic of occurring following acute or repeated exposure and resulting in the death of a person exposed to the product, or have an adverse effect on that person's health - including injury. If a product is classified in this class, the hazard statement will describe the nature of the hazard. 32 Pictograms WHMIS 1988 Symbols vs. WHMIS 2015 Pictograms WHMIS 1988 Symbols WHMIS 2015 Pictograms
33 WHMIS 2015 Pictograms Flame for fire hazards Flame over Circle Gas Cylinder For oxidizing hazards
For gases under pressure Corrosion for corrosive damage to metals as well as skin and eyes Exploding Bomb for explosion or
reactivity hazards 34 WHMIS 2015 Pictograms Skull and Crossbones can cause death or toxicity with short exposure or small amounts Health Hazard may cause or suspected of
causing serious health effects Exclamation Mark may cause less serious health effects or damage the ozone layer Biohazardous Infectious Materials for organisms or toxins that can cause diseases in people or
animals Environmental *Not adopted by WHMIS 2015* may cause damage to the aquatic environment WHMIS 2015 Pictograms 35 Do all hazard classes and categories require a pictogram? WHMIS 2015 classes and categories that do not require a pictogram are: Flammable gases - Category 2
Flammable liquids - Category 4 Self-reactive substances and mixtures - Type G Organic peroxides - Type G Combustible dusts - Category 1 Simple asphyxiants - Category 1 Serious eye damage/eye irritation - Eye irritation - Category 2B Reproductive toxicity - Effects on or via lactation WHMIS 2015 Pictograms Where will you find the pictograms? 36 Exemptions from WHMIS 1. Fully Exempt Products excluded from all aspects of WHMIS are:
Wood and products made of wood Tobacco and products made of tobacco Manufactured articles Dangerous goods while they are covered by TDG legislation Hazardous wastes 37 Exemptions from WHMIS 38 2. Partially Exempt Products partially excluded from some aspects of WHMIS include: Product
In Canada, these products are covered by: Explosives Explosives Act Cosmetics, devices, and food and drugs Food and Drug Act Pesticides and herbicides Pest Control Product Act Radioactive materials Nuclear Safety and Control Act
Consumer products Canada Consumer Product Safety Act Exemptions from WHMIS 2. Partially Exempt While WHMIS label and SDS requirements do not apply to partially exempt products, the employer is still required to provide WHMIS training for workers using or working near them. 39
Unit 1 & 2 Check Your Understanding 40 Unit 3: WHMIS Labels WHMIS 1988 vs. WHMIS 2015 Supplier Labels 41 42 WHMIS Labeling Two main types of WHMIS Labels: Supplier Labels Workplace Labels
42 WHMIS 2015 Supplier Labels 43 WHMIS 2015 Supplier Labels What is a SIGNAL WORD? 44 WHMIS 2015 Supplier Labels What is a HAZARD STATEMENT? 45 WHMIS 2015 Supplier Labels What is a PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENT?
46 47 Variations to Supplier Labels Variations on the supplier label apply for specific items such as: Bulk shipments. 100 mL or less 3mL or less Employers are required to teach workers about any of the variations they might see at the worksite. 47 Workplace Labels 48
Three pieces of information required: 1. Product Name 2. Information for Safe Handling 3. Reference to SDS Workplace Labels A workplace label is required when: a hazardous product is produced (made) at the workplace and used in that workplace, a hazardous product is transferred or poured into another container, or a supplier label becomes lost or unreadable.
49 Workplace Labels 50 When is a workplace label not required? 1. Poured into a container and it is going to be used immediately, or 2. "Under the control of the person who decanted it". What do you need to do? 51 Always check to see if there is a label on the product before you use
it. Read, understand and follow the instructions on the label and SDS. Follow any additional education, instructions, and training as provided by your employer. Ask your supervisor if you are not sure about how to use or store it. Ask for a new label when the old one cannot be seen or read properly. Do not use a product that is not labelled or if the label is unreadable. Ask your supervisor for help (e.g., to replace the label).
