60 Day Public Review Starts Today

CSA (the Cana­di­an Stan­dards Asso­ci­a­tion) has been work­ing on a new risk assess­ment stan­dard called Z1002 — Occu­pa­tion­al Health and Safe­ty Haz­ard Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and Elim­i­na­tion and Risk Assess­ment and Con­trol, since the fall of 2007.

This risk assess­ment stan­dard is the first of its kind glob­al­ly and will place the CSA Z100x series of Occu­pa­tion­al Health and Safe­ty Man­age­ment stan­dards at the fore­front glob­al­ly when it is pub­lished this year.

This stan­dard is des­tined to become a Cana­di­an Nation­al Stan­dard and will have influ­ence on all the stan­dards in the CSA Cat­a­log that include risk assess­ment (CSA Z432, CSA Z434, CSA Z460, CSA Z462, etc.)

As of today, the stan­dard is avail­able for pub­lic review. This means that you can down­load a draft copy of the stan­dard for free and have a look at the con­tent of the doc­u­ment. It’s also hoped that you will pro­vide com­ments on the doc­u­ment that will go back to the tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee at the end of the Pub­lic Review phase on 17-Apr-11 17-Mar-11. Every com­ment will be reviewed by the Tech­ni­cal Com­mit­tee. You have the chance to make change in the doc­u­ment before it is pub­lished lat­er this year.

Pub­lic Review is only open for 60 days, so act quick­ly! On 17-Apr-11 17-Mar-11 review will close per­ma­nent­ly for this edi­tion of the doc­u­ment!
