No more room? Add your name to the wait list. We’ll call you if space opens up.

Haz­ard ana­lys­is and imple­ment­ing machine 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 guard safety.

We’re invit­ing you to attend our inform­at­ive sem­in­ar on such top­ics as PSR, 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
  • Col­lab­or­at­ive Robots
  • ISO 14119 – the new stand­ard for inter­lock design
