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.

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
