Andrea Holbeche
CSA Group

When CSA standards are developed for occupational health and safety (OHS), what does the process look like? In this plenary, Andrea Holbeche, project manager in OHS at CSA Group (formerly the Canadian Standards Association), lays out the methodology for developing, writing and reviewing standards to ensure they remain current and technically valid. CSA standards are used by a broad base of stakeholders to help enhance safety for people and businesses. When implemented by industries or regulators, CSA standards help contribute to a wide range of safety and sustainability goals.
