Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for Compliance with Canada’s WHMIS

Canadian companies that are in the hazardous materials supply chain (i.e. chemical manufacturer, distributor or employer) are required by WHMIS provisions to maintain safety data sheets for the chemicals made and/or used in their facility. MSDSs provide employees and first responders with information needed to safely handle chemicals, especially during emergencies.
