Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews

PSR's are required when new equipment or modified equipment are introduced into the workplace. The workplace and work procedures are reviewed by a professional engineer who is familiar with the equipment and processes that is able to verify the general conformity with the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Safety Act of Ontario and the Regulations for Industrial Establishments .


N.D.T. - Non Destructive Testing

NDT is an examination of products for defects/cracks. Modulus employs a wide range of analysis techniques to evaluate the properties of material without causing damage. In areas where welds are used to join two or more metal parts, non-destructive testing is imperative because welds may encounter loads that may cause the structure to fail if not created to proper specification.


Home Made Device / System Certification
