No matter where you are located, our experts are committed to serving you locally from our network of offices and laboratories in North America, Europe and Asia. Leading manufacturers and retailers look for the CSA mark to verify that your products have successfully been certified to applicable standards requirements.
Testing & certification
CSA Group tests & certifies a range of fall protection components to the CSA Z259 series of standards, as required in Canada, and the corresponding ANSI/ASME standards for the U.S.
- Body belts
- Body harnesses
- Connecting components
- Energy absorbers
- Fall arresters

We develop a range of standards for fall protection systems and the management of fall hazards. Our technical committees, representing a range of industry stakeholders, update these standards regularly in response to technological change and evolving safety concerns. CSA Group also publishes guides to help with the selection and proper use of current fall protection equipment. We offer fall protection training to help ensure that workers and supervisors follow proper safety methods when working with fall arrest equipment and systems.
Our long history in developing fall protection standards in conjunction with our technical proficiency, gives us valuable knowledge, which we apply for you throughout the testing & certification process. We will develop a testing & certification program that will be delivered by CSA Group technical representatives dedicated to seeing your project through from start to finish.
