    • Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews (For Ontario)

    What is a Pre-Start Health and Safety Review (PHSR):

    A PHSR is a review of the equipment prior to it being put in production to ensure removal or control of any hazards. Many countries require the equipment to meet specific safety standards before they are put in production.


    • ANSI/ISO 13849/CSA Safety Review (For USA and rest of Canada)

    Risk assessment establishes the foundation for the design and implementation of an effective machine safety program. ZCS helps cients to ientify, document and eliminate/reduce hazards in a particular machine or process following ISO or ANSI standards.


    • Safety Upgrades

    Our multidisciplinary team of electrical engineers, mechanical designers, electrical technicians and licenced electricians can complete modification/upgrades on most industrial equipment, both old and new to bring it in compliance with relevant standards of the province/country where the equipment is being installed.


    • Lock Out Tag Out

    Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) is a safety procedure which is used in industry and research settings to ensure that dangerous machines are properly shut off and not started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or servicing work.


    • Hazardous Area Classifications

    A Hazardous Area Classification (HAC) is intended to identify hazards areas as defined under the electrical code.

    General Definition of Hazardous Locations:

    Hazardous locations can be defined as areas where flammable liquid, gases or vapours or combustible dusts exist in sufficient quantities to produce an explosion or fire. In hazardous locations, specifically designed equipment and special installation techniques must be used to protect against the explosive and flammable potential of these substances.
