The requirements dealing with pre-start health and safety reviews (PSRs) are numerous and complex. Under Section 7 of the Regulations for Industrial Establishments, you may need to conduct a PSR and implement compliance measures before a new or modified apparatus, structure, protective element or process is put into production.

Learn when a PSR is required and when the legal requirements apply. You’ll take back to your workplace tools and resources to help you comply, including a Section 7 flowchart and worksheet developed by WSPS and guidelines for PSRs developed by the Ministry of Labour.

  • Intent of S.7 and when it applies to a workplace
  • The benefits of a PSR S.7 - The table
  • When the PSR requirement applies
