For products such as baby seats and bicycle helmets, it’s fairly common knowledge that a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) designation means that they were built with safety in mind. What may be less apparent is the CSA’s involvement in the agriculture sector. Since 1990, it has published 45 standards that tackle the safe design and use of farm machinery.
This month (April), the association will unveil Canada’s first stab at outlining an occupational health and safety management system for agriculture.
