If you build machinery for the Canadian market, or if you modify equipment in Canadian workplaces, you will be familiar with CSA Z432, Safeguarding of Machinery. This standard has been around since 1992, with the last major revision published in 2004. CSA has reconvened the Technical Committee responsible for this important standard to revise the document to reflect the current practices in the machinery market, and to bring in new ideas that are developing internationally that affect what Canadian machine builders are doing.
If you have interest in this standard and would like to have your thoughts and concerns communicated to the Technical Committee, please feel free to contact me with your suggestions. Work starts on 28-Jan-14. Your input is welcomed!
