33 Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System
What is it? A system put in place to respond to the Canadian workers' right to know more about safety and health hazards of the materials they use in their workplace. Canada-wide legislation with specific Provincial input. Provides specific information about hazardous materials (controlled products). *See Video : Making WHMIS Work

34 Three parts to WHMIS: Labels: Education / Training: MSDS:

35 Labels: Alert worker to the identity and dangers of the product and to basic safety precautions.
Labels may contain symbols form the 6 Classes of Hazardous Materials

36 MSDS are technical documents that provide more detailed hazard, precautionary, and emergency information about a substance. An MSDS must be present for each hazardous material regulated under WHMIS Canadian MSDS consist of nine pieces of information:

38 OH&S

39 Definition of OH&S Handout: OH&S Worksheet
OH&S is a discipline designed to protect people, property, and the environment in a workplace setting. It attempts to promote safe and healthy work environments, as well as healthy attitudes towards safe work practices.

40 OH&S Legislation Every province and territory has an Act:
In NL the Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Act and Regulations were created in 1978 The purpose of the act was to: to protect workers while on the job.

41 How is the legislation enforced?
Federal and provincial jurisdictions have inspectors who: Conduct inspections Investigate accidents and serious injuries Complete tests such as air quality assessments Inspect radiation controls Enforce the OH&S legislation

42 OH&S Directives When inspectors find that an employer is not complying with OH&S Legislation, they may issue directives. A directive states the law they must comply with and a time-frame for compliance. For example, if required training has not been given, the directive will state that the training session must be completed by a certain date.

43 Stop-Work Order If inspectors discover that all or part of work at a workplace poses an immediate risk to the health and safety of workers or other people, they may issue a stop-work order. A stop-work order means that all work stops until the unsafe condition is corrected


45 Internal Responsibility System
The OHSA is based on an Internal Responsibility System (IRS) - A concept based on the principle that the workplace parties themselves are in the best position to identify health and safety problems.

46 Occupational Health and Safety Committee
An occupational health and safety committee is group made up of representatives from management and workers who address health and safety concerns in the workplace.

47 OH&S Requirements In brief, the requirements for an occupational health and safety committee are as follows: • A workplace having 10 or more workers must have a committee. • The committee may consist of two to 12 members. • At least half the members shall be elected by workers. • The other half shall be appointed by the employer. • Committee meetings shall be held every three months • Minutes of meetings are to be posted in the workplace and a copy is to be forwarded to the Commission.

48 Responsibilities The OH&S committees responsibilities are to:
Investigating workplace accidents and incidents • Conducting inspections and detailed audits of workplaces • Enforcing Occupational Health and Safety Legislation.

49 Responsibilities When it comes to safety at work, it’s everyone’s responsibility. Employers are responsible to do the following: • Provide a safe workplace, equipment, systems and tools. • Provide information, supervision and safe facilities • Ensure that workers, are familiar with all hazards • Consult and cooperate with their OH&S Committees

50 Responsibilities Employees are responsible to protect:
• Their own health and safety • The health and safety of other workers • Report unsafe conditions in the workplace. • Co-operate with the occupational health and safety committee. Video: Safety at work ppe helmet


52 Basic Rights What are the basic rights of workers? The right to know
The right to participate The right to refuse

53 The Right to Know Workers have a right to know about all of the hazards to which they might be exposed in their workplace, such as: Chemicals present and first aid treatment required Dangers associated with equipment

54 The Right to Participate
Workers have the right to take part in protecting themselves against injury or illness in the workplace. This may mean Being a member of the OH&S committee Assist in developing safe work procedures Reporting unsafe conditions

55 The Right to Refuse Workers have a right to refuse unsafe work if the feel that the work will cause injury or illness to themselves or others There is a full section (45) of the OH&S Act that deals with this right. When a worker decides to refuse unsafe work it is important that the supervisor is the first one notified.


57 The Right to Refuse Important Note:
Workers cannot be disciplined if they use their right to refuse unsafe work when they have reasonable grounds to believe that the work is dangerous to the health and safety of themselves or others. Video: Right to refuse work

58 Workplace Injuries A workplace injury is one that: Happens at work, Needs medical treatment; and May or may not need time away from work. When you are first notified of the injury, and are confident the worker has received the necessary care, collect details about the incident Note what happened, 2. where it happened and 3. the names of people who saw the incident; Activity: Work injury report and form 6

59 Workplace Health, Safety & Compensation Commission (WHSCC)

60 Workplace Health, Safety & Compensation Commission (WHSCC) is an employer-funded no fault insurance system that promotes safe and healthy workplaces, provides return-to-work programs and compensation to injured workers.

61 SAFE work Program The SAFE work program is sponsored by the Workplace Health, Safety & Compensation Commission (WHSCC). The program strives to educate Newfoundlanders and Labradorians about workplace health and safety. Videos : Safework (8 videos)
