Health and Safety Standards Seminars
Canadian Standards Association International (CSA) is a not-for-profit, non-statutory, voluntary membership association engaged in standards development and certification activities. CSA standards reflect a national consensus of producers and users -- including manufacturers, consumers, retailers, unions and professional organizations, and governmental agencies. The standards are used widely by industry and commerce and often adopted by municipal, provincial, and federal governments in their regulations, particularly in the fields of health, safety, building and construction, and the environment.
