Good Morning Everyone,
We have now posted CSA Z1210-16  Workplace First Aid for the mandatory Public Review period. 
Note: That we have extended this review period into the early fall at the request of the Committee.  Our Public Review period will be 70 days and will close on September 26, 2016 (as opposed to the 60 day norm)
 
This is a huge milestone for our Committee and Debbie and I, on behalf of CSA , wish to congratulate each and every one of you.  Thank you for your hard work and dedication in meeting this aggressive timeline!
 
The link to the Public Review site is as follows: 
 
CSA Z1210-17 Workplace First Aid
Public Review closes on September 23, 2016.
 
Please note: The Public Review site is for comments from the Public Only. 
Please use the link above if you'd like to help us spread the news.  The site requires a simple email login/password and then allows members of the Public to provide comments on the specific Clauses.
 
Debbie and I will be sending out a notice in the next couple of weeks for a fall TC meeting or conference call meeting to review the Public Review comments and complete the work on our draft.
 
Kind regards and congratulations!
 
Jill and Debbie
