PSM News

  • The CSA Z767-17 standard on Process Safety Management was published on Friday, February 20, 2017. This is a reflection of the dedication of our project team who have spent the last three years diligently working on the standard. The French translation is in progress, and the division should have PSM as a National Standard of Canada by Q4 2017. We have a dedicated team that is organizing the next phase of workshops and information sessions. More details around the release will be available on this webpage, as well as on the CSA Group website.
