Products HHPS and WHMIS Symbols Household Hazardous Product Symbols (HHPS) Many products used in our homes

may be dangerous if used incorrectly. For this reason, household products are marked with symbols that allow us to recognize and interpret potential hazards

Each symbol has two components: Its shape tells you how hazardous a product is: Within each shape are symbols that tell you what kind of hazard the product is:

Identify the meaning of the following symbols: WHMIS SYMBOLS The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) has

produced symbols for hazardous products found in the workplace. WHMIS symbols are similar to HHPS symbols, but are always in a circle WHMIS symbols identify a wider range of hazards than HHPS symbols

WHMIS LABELS WHMIS labels are affixed or attached to the containers of controlled products, and provide information that: Alerts the user to the hazards of the product States what precautions to take when

handling the product. Refers the user to a material safety data sheet (MSDS) for more detailed information about the product.
