CSA TAKES A LOOK AT NEW HARD HAT STANDARDS
CSA Group is set to release a new standard governing hard hats for public discussion and feedback.
The next edition of the standard will be published early in 2015 as CSA Z94.1-15, replacing the 2005 standard and continuing the standard which was first set in 1948.
The changes include a defined protected area along with updated penetration testing, removal of the UV resistance requirement pending ongoing research to validate the impact of sunlight.
The standard is set by a committee of 40 people drawn from the industry and science community.
The above will be available online for review at http://publicreview.csa.ca in August.
