WHMIS 2015 GHS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. WHMIS is Canada's national hazard communication standard. The system was created to prevent injuries, illnesses and death caused by hazardous material known as controlled products. Various health effects can be caused from the exposure to hazardous materials such as propane, gasoline, bleach, acids, cleaning supplies, etc.
