Machine hazards continue to be a leading cause of serious workplace injury and death. CSA Z432 Safeguarding of Machinery is a voluntary standard that helps to protect workers from hazards associated with the use of mobile or stationary machinery by providing the description, selection, and application of guards and safety devices. The new edition of the standard has undergone extensive review and revision.
The 1-day Safeguarding of Machinery: Understanding CSA Z432 course has been updated to reflect the new edition of the standards. It is offered in collaboration with WSPS and guides participants through the sections of the standard so they become familiar with its content and application.
