Why CSA?

CSA Group is trusted and committed to advancing public safety in Canada and around the world

The CSA Group public safety standards portfolio offers more than 15 standards, many of which are referenced in legislation, as well as pioneering standards on psychological health and safety in the paramedic service organization, protection of first responders from CBRN events, emergency and continuity management programs, and transportation of dangerous goods.

Our standards are based on our own research as well as our robust and collaborative standards development process. We also work with provincial governments and other respected organizations to develop these standards.

By working together with a diverse group of experts, we’re evolving and expanding our standards solutions to address the latest challenges. These include standards for the protection of first responders from CBRN events, and personal protective equipment for investigating and dismantling clandestine drug labs.
