CSA Group, a leading global provider of testing and certification services and a standards development organization in Canada, has launched a new testing and certification program for high-visibility safety apparel to the requirements of CSA Z96-09.

High-visibility apparel includes garments such as coveralls and vests and is intended to make the individual easy to see in low light conditions. This type of apparel is used in construction, emergency response, and leisure sports. Finished garments are tested and certified as assembled garments. Other high-visibility items such as retro-reflective stripes or bands, combined performance bands, and background materials may be certified as component parts of a garment, according to CSA.

CSA Z96-09 standard, developed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), provides guidance on the design and manufacture of high visibility safety apparel. It recommends that a hazard assessment be carried out on each job to determine the risk to workers of being struck by moving vehicles and the environmental conditions under which the work is performed. The standard specifies requirements for occupational apparel that is capable of signaling the user’s presence visually helping them spot objects under any light conditions and under illumination by vehicle headlights.

Nashir Jiwani, CSA Group regional vice president, Canada said, “CSA Group is a leading provider of testing and certification services and standards development for high-visibility safety apparel for the Canadian market. This program is part of CSA Group’s commitment to contributing to a better, safer world. The expanded services will help our clients to meet the requirements that help promote safer work environments in Canada.”

CSA Group offers a comprehensive program of standards solutions, testing, and certification for personal protective equipment. Its services cover a broad range of products including: fall protection equipment, head protection, protective eye-wear and face protectors, and protective footwear. (GK)
