The Ontario Health and Safety Act requires safety compliance for businesses using equipment or processes that have potential hazard exposures that fall under the Act. Failure to comply could result in significant financial penalties and downtime.
A Pre-Start Health and Safety Review (PSR or PHSR) by a qualified professional is a mandatory written report that must be completed for any new or reused process or equipment that has been installed or modified in a new or existing workplace. Just a few examples of where a PSHR would be required thing such as machine guarding issues, dust collection processes and equipment, flammable liquid storage processes, storage rack design and installation, lifting devices and many other types of processes or equipment. Thousands of Ontario businesses are unaware of their non-compliance and are at risk of significant penalties.
