Pre-Start Health and Safety Review (PSR)

PPA can arrange for a PSR Inspection of the subject equipment on behalf of the customer.

The review requires a field inspection of the subject equipment at the customer's location upon completion of the installation and any modifications which may be required.

The report identifies the design drawings, specifications, and the current applicable codes and standards used in evaluating the machine's design, operation and control systems.

The review is to satisfy the requirements of the Occupational Health & Safety Act, CSA safety standards, and the Ontario Electrical Code. This includes a review of general requirements for electric, control, and mechanical guarding systems, to ensure that machine design, control, and operation systems are in-line with good engineering and safety practices. The requirements cover lockout capability, mechanical guarding and control reliability of the safety device circuitry to eliminate hazards by design.
