Challenged by HazMat Information & Compliance Management?

October 2, 2003 - All employers must adhere to Federal and Provincial compliancy legislation in regards to workplace settings, including the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OHSA); Hazardous Products Act (HPA); Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) and Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG). Failure to comply with any of these legislative acts may result in costly penalties for your business.

Penalities can take the form of severe fines and legal action; both of which can negatively impact the community and industry profile of a business. For example, violation of the Federal WHMIS may result in a fine up to $1 million and/or imprisonment for up to two years; while violation of Provincial WHMIS laws may result in directives to make drastic operational changes, cease operations, potential fine payments up to $300,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.

As the Canadian leader established to promote and maintain global standards, the Electronic Commerce Council of Canada (ECCC) has partnered with 3E Company, the leading US provider of Hazardous Material Information Services, to offer Canadian companies and members of trade associations a value-added WHMIS Information Management Services. 3E offers a variety of services designed to alleviate the burdensome aspects of stringent compliance with the legislations that apply to their own work practices and environments.
