In Canada, equipment which is used in a Hazardous Location (HazLoc) is required to be certified to specific CSA Standards. The certification process requires a detailed analysis of the subject equipment to ensure that it meets the applicable standards for electrical safety for the specific HazLoc environment. The ultimate objective is to ensure that an electrical fault does not initiate a condition that could lead to the ignition of an airborne flammable substance. eSAFE has a highly-experienced staff of HazLoc specialists. Our scope of certification services cover equipment that is used in explosive atmospheres, as well as equipment for use in non-hazardous locations. eSAFE uses a state of the art Quality Management System with built in safeguards to ensure that the correct process is followed in a HazLoc equipment certification. Our Quality Management System is regularly audited by the Standards Council of Canada to ensure we are in full compliance with ISO-17065.
When your equipment has our mark of approval, you can rest assured that you have met the safety and legal requirements to authorize the use of that equipment anywhere in Canada. As an organization that has been in the electrical equipment inspections business for over 100 years, we bring relevant skills and experience to every job. Over the years, we have evaluated everything from Gas Power Plants to Food Processing Equipment.
Our approach is simple: Safety & Professionalism to deliver a great customer experience.
We are experienced with evaluating equipment that originates from foreign manufacturers. Even if components do not have local approvals from Canadian approval agencies, we can utilize documentation through the IECEx scheme and International Member Country agreements (as authorized by the Standards Council of Canada), to make use of existing approvals to save on certification efforts.
