WHMIS 2015 & Paratox

New regulations... new software!

On February 11th, 2015, the Government of Canada published in the Canada Gazette, Part II, the Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR), which, in addition to the amendments made to the Hazardous Products Act modified the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) 1988 to incorporate the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) for workplace chemicals. This modified WHMIS is referred to as WHMIS 2015.

Paratox is the only tool that ensures
an ingenious, simple & effective transition
