What is a Pre-Start Health and Safety Review?
A Pre-Start Health & Safety Review (PSR or PHSR) is a machine safety compliance review for equipment or processes being installed or modified in a manufacturing environment, prior to its commissioning at the final user’s location. A PSR is required in Ontario by Section 7 of Regulation 851 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (S.7 of O.Reg. 851), under 8 specific circumstances, to be performed by an Ontario Licensed Professional Engineer. The review is typically done at the final manufacturing location, however a preliminary review at the machine manufacturer’s location, before installation, can be advantageous as changes or modifications are more easily fabricated and integrated.
