CSA Z1002 Risk Assessment Standard – 60 Day Public Review

Get more inform­a­tion on CSA Z1002. The draft of this doc­u­ment is now avail­able for pub­lic review through CSA.

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!
