WHMIS 2015 Labels

WHMIS 2015 requires all hazardous products to be appropriately labelled. These labels serve to notify workers of associated hazards and safety precautions one should take. There are two main types of labels:

- Supplier Labels
- Workplace Labels

WHMIS 2015 Supplier Labels

WHMIS 2015 supplier labels must contain the following elements:

Product identifier โ€“ name of hazardous product, as reflected on (M)SDS [can be a chemical name, common or brand name, generic name or trade name]

Pictogram(s) โ€“ applicable hazard symbols within red diamond

Signal word โ€“โ€˜Dangerโ€™ or โ€˜Warningโ€™ to describe the severity of hazard posed by a controlled product.

Precautionary statement(s) โ€“ standardized phrases describing safety measures, including use of PPE, handling & storage information for hazardous product

Supplier identifier โ€“ name, address and phone number of either Canadian manufacturer or importer

Supplemental label information โ€“ some additional information is required, depending on classification of the product

The product identifier (name)

A reference to the SDS

Note that provincial jurisdiction may mandate slightly different WHMIS workplace label requirements
