Quick look at the 2015 WHMIS Pictograms

To help your workers for a better understanding, Maerix has designed a sign with illustrations of all the WHMIS 2015 pictograms. This way, your employees will be able to have a quick look and recognize the type of danger they are expose to by using a product. The same type of pictograms appears on the labels of the suppliers, workplace and safety data sheets (MSDS).

I BURN

I can ignite if I’m in contact with a flame, a spark, static electricity, air or if I’m subjected to heat or friction. I may produce flammable gases when I’m in contact with water.

I FEED THE FIRE

I can provoke or aggravate a fire, or even cause an explosion if I’m in the presence of flammable products.

I’M UNDER PRESSURE

I may blow up if I’m subjected to heat (compressed, liquefied or dissolved gases). I can cause burns or frostbite injuries (refrigerated liquefied gases).

I KILL

I quickly poison, even in small doses.

I BLOW UP

I can explode if I’m in contact with a flame, a spark, static electricity, or if I’m subjected to heat or friction.

I’M HARMFUL

I can cause cancer. I can be fatal if swallowed or inhaled. I can modify the DNA. I can damage the functioning of certain organs. I can cause respiratory allergies. I may impair fertility and cause harm to the developing fetus.

I’M TOXIC

I poison in high doses. I can cause drowsiness and dizziness. I irritate the skin, the eyes and/or the respiratory tract. I can cause skin allergies.

I DESTROY

I can corrode metals. I can eat away skin and/or eyes with a spatter or a contact.
