How the new CSA A500 guards standard will impact your business - OGMA spring sem

Wednesday 12 April 2017, 11:45am - 03:00pm
Location: Richmond Hill Country Club, Richmond Hill, Ont.
The CSA just released the "A500-16 Building Guards" standard and if your business includes the glazing of balustrades, railings, staircases, or other guards, whether indoors or outdoors, compliance will soon be mandatory. This standard specifies requirements for the materials, design, construction, testing, and performance of building guards that act as protective barriers to prevent accidental falls from one level to another, and includes walls that serve this purpose.
SPEAKERS: Sergei Mihhailenko, P.Eng., C.Eng. of Mihko Engineering Ltd. is well known in our industry for his extensive experience in structural engineering and building envelope design, specializing in aluminum curtainwalls and architectural glazing.
Les Szczepanski, P.Eng., Technical Services Manager at Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope, Mississauga and a member of the Technical Committee on Building Guards that developed the CSA A500, will discuss the requirements of the new standard.
WHY YOU SHOULD BE THERE: The new standard brings a number of challenges, hurdles, testing requirements, and submissions that must be done to prove compliance for the glazing of guards you will be doing in the future.  
MAJOR SPONSORS FOR THIS EVENT: The OGMA extends its sincere gratitude to Trulite Glass and Aluminum Solutions, LLC and Kuraray America, Inc. for jointly sponsoring this event. Their contribution is reflected in the discounted cost of admission to our valued OGMA members.
