Safeguarding of Machinery
Last update 05/01/2022
On October 25, 2016, the third edition of Canadian Standard Z432 on safeguarding of machinery was published.
It is the reference Standard for the Assessment and Reduction of Risk due to hazards of mechanical nature. Inside this Standard there is also a set of regulations inspired by EN ISO technical Standards.
For the first time, the use of EN ISO13849 for the functional safety of control systems is made official.
Moreover, additional Annex material has been added to provide a technical guidance for users and allowable minimum (safe) distances have been changed to allow for the use of CAN/CSA-ISO 13857.
