Pre-Start Health & Safety Review (PSR)

Mezzanine Men provides a comprehensive Safety Inspection and/or a Pre-Start Health & Safety Review (PSR) to insure industrial steel racking structures are compliant with Section 7 of The Ontario Occupational Health & Safety Act for Industrial Establishments.  We can also implement and maintain a Racking Inspection Program to insure the continued safety of your racking system.

What is a PSR

A Pre-start Health and Safety Review is a specific audit of a process or piece of equipment and the interaction with its surrounding environment.  A PSR identifies safety concerns and potential hazards. It also defines what measures need to be taken to bring the identified deficiencies into compliance.

Do I require a PSR if it is not required?

You as an employer are responsible for ensuring that all requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and regulations are complied with in the workplace. If a Pre-Start Health and Safety Review is not required or an exemption from the requirements of section 7 applies, the employer must ensure that workers will be protected when they use any apparatus, structure, protective element or process in the workplace.

Should you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mezzanine Men at (416) 801-4305.
