Part 29 Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)

Section 400 Decanted products

This Section presents requirements for the labelling of containers used for decanted products to ensure that controlled products are not handled, used or stored at the workplace in unlabelled containers. However, this section does not apply if the worker requires all of the product for immediate use. “Immediate” means to be used at once, without delay. Labelling is also not required if the product will be under the exclusive control (not used by others) of the worker who filled the container and will be used only during that work shift. At the end of the work shift, the container must be empty. If not, the worker must apply a work site label or empty the contents into an appropriately labelled container.
