CSA Updates

The new CSA Z1001 - Occupational Health and Safety Training standard is now available.  Providing adequate training to employees is a critical element of risk management and can help promote health & safety on the job.   CSA Z1001 helps organizations invest limited training resources effectively by providing the essentials of managing a health and safety training program and a method to recognize OH&S training practices.

The CSA Z412 - Guideline on Office Ergonomics is undergoing a necessary revision that will update it to meet current developments in technology, office design and infrastructures.  Initially released in 1989 with an update in 2000, there is a lot to catch up on.  Once again, we are pleased to annouce that Mike Harnett has committed to be actively serving on the Technical Committee during the next two years of development.

The long awaited CAN/CSA-Z1003-13/BNQ 9700-803/2013 - Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace is now available.  Championed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) and developed collaboratively by the Bureau de Normalisation du Quebec (BNQ) and CSA Group (CSA), this new voluntary standard can be downloaded at no charge following a brief registration.  Mike Harnett, Director of Operations for workSMART Ergonomics Ltd., was an active participant on committee that formulated this important standard, the first of it's kind in North America.  Click here to download the standard.  CSA Psychological H&S Standard
