Risk analysis and machinery safety can be complicated.

We’re here to help

Let’s face it, keep­ing up with safe­ty stan­dards and Occu­pa­tion­al Health and Safe­ty reg­u­la­tions can be a con­fus­ing and chal­leng­ing task. Let us help you under­stand machine guard­ing.

Schm­er­sal, Franklin Empire & Com­pli­ance inSight Con­sult­ing Inc. invite you to attend our infor­ma­tive sem­i­nar on top­ics includ­ing Ontario’s  Pre-Start Health and Safe­ty Reviews, risk assess­ment, and CSA stan­dards on guard­ing.

Dur­ing this sem­i­nar we will review:

  • PSR Guide­lines — require­ments for Ontario
  • Ini­tial steps before pur­chas­ing a machine
  • Steps for exist­ing machin­ery
  • Updates and changes to Z432-16
  • ISO 14119 — the new stan­dard for inter­lock design
