Building Safety into Recreation & Sports this Winter

Winter is around the corner, and that means recreational activities will take people from the ice rinks to the ski hills. Winter activities carry certain risks – from head & face injuries to getting lost in remote areas. Standards can not only provide the design and testing requirements for critical sports equipment, but can help ensure that if ground search & rescue teams are needed, the team members are competent and trained.

For a limited time, CSA Group is offering a 15% savings on key standards that contribute to a safer winter recreational season.
