Pre-Start Health & Safety Reviews
Pre-start Health and Safety Reviews (PSR) are a Ministry of Labour requirement. This regulation requires the owner, lessee, or employer to have proper documentation for new or used storage equipment. Concept Storage Solutions Ltd. has provided hundreds of Pre-start Health and Safety Reviews for our customers and also for owners of storage equipment who have received a Ministry of Labour “Order to Comply”. Making sure your storage system complies with Ontario Health & Safety Act is important. Our experienced staff members are happy to review your site.
Workplaces with racking and storage facilities may contain potentially serious hazards. The improper use, selection and installation, or maintenance of racking and storage systems may put workers at risk of injury.
The Ministry of Labour inspects racking and storage facilities used by workers at industrial workplaces across Ontario. The stepped-up enforcement is part of the ministry's Safe At Work Ontario strategy, launched in June 2008.
Ministry of Labour inspectors will check whether the required precautions are being met by all who work in and around racking systems, as specified in the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and the Regulations for Industrial Establishments (R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 851).
