New! Revitalized machine safeguarding standard
Jan 17, 2017
A lot has changed in the last 12 years when it comes to machine safety: technology, hazard combinations, solutions, and even the scope of health and safety. These changes have prompted a comprehensive updating of CSA's 2004 (R2014) machine safeguarding standard.
CSA Z432-16, Safeguarding of Machinery reflects "the tremendous amount of time and effort put into revising it," says WSPS machine safety specialist Michael Wilson. "New sections and thoroughly updated material will provide workplaces with valuable information for protecting workers who operate or maintain machinery." WSPS consultants like Michael are on hand to help you understand the changes, and how they affect your workplace.
Like the previous edition, CSA Z432-16 sets out requirements for the design, manufacture, installation, maintenance, operation, and safeguarding of industrial equipment. According to CSA, the new standard "applies to newly manufactured, rebuilt and redeployed machinery, but may also be used to set upgrade targets for existing machinery."
