The product label is the worker's first source of information about the hazards of a product and how to use it safely. Under WHMIS, supplier labels for hazardous workplace products must display the product identifier and supplier identifier, as well as hazard pictogram(s), signal word, hazard statement(s), and precautionary statement(s) assigned based on the hazard classification.

Workplace labels must display the product identifier, safe handling precautions, and reference to the safety data sheet, if available.

Display this poster of the WHMIS label elements to help workers understand the label information they will be seeing in the workplace.

This poster has been updated to reflect the December 2022 WHMIS amendments.
