Canadian regulations assign clear responsibilities to suppliers of hazardous materials as well as employers who require their workers to handle such products.

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) mandates product labelling, material safety data sheets (MSDSs), and training to ensure workers are properly informed of the dangers in the workplace and how to avoid them.
