CSA Offers Safety and Health Standards Online

The Canadian Standards Association has begun a two-year pilot project to let users view its occupational health and safety standards online via the Web site www.ohs.csa.ca. The View Access initiative was developed in collaboration with federal, provincial, and territorial OSH government agencies.

"Appropriate occupational health and safety practices can mean the difference between life and death," said Suzanne Kiraly, CSA's president, Standards. "This initiative will especially help small and medium–sized organizations improve workplace safety. By making these documents available, we hope that companies will know and apply occupational health and safety standards."

CSA is a not-for-profit, membership-based association that develops standards and provides education and training; this collaboration with government agencies is the first of its kind for CSA, which said the effort "is driven by the pressing need to improve workplace safety."

"Every year, more than 1,000 Canadians die as a result of workplace injuries and disease. We can and should do more to protect the lives of workers. We need information, best practices, and safer products to make a difference. CSA believes this new project will serve to raise awareness of OHS products and services and will help reduce workplace injuries and fatalities in Canada," said Kiraly.
