October 17, 2018, marked a historic day in Canada. Cannabis is now legal. With the legislative change, comes a minefield of information; both myths and facts. Undoubtedly, this legal change will affect your workplace. What are your duties as an employer or supervisor? What if someone has an authorization for medical cannabis? How do you keep your workers safe? Health & Safety Professionals Inc. is here to help. We will offer regular courses, and update them as research and best practices emerge. We discuss cannabis in our Supervisor course. We are available for onsite training, lunch and learn sessions, and policy and procedure writing. Let us know how we can help.

WHMIS 2015

Are you ready? Beginning in February of 2015, suppliers began changing their labels and safety data sheets over to the new Globally Harmonized System (GHS) standards. By the end of 2018, there should be no hazardous products in your workplace with WHMIS 1988 labels or material safety data sheets. HSPI has developed a new program for workers and it launched on October 17, 2017. Click here to register. We are also available to do in-house training and can make it specific to your workplace.
