This course will enable participants to better understand the impact of climate change on the work of infrastructure owners, managers, designers, and developers in Northern Communities. Northern Infrastructure Standardization Initiative (NISI) Standards have been developed to support the "appropriate consideration" of extreme weather, climate variability and climate change in the design, development, operation & maintenance of Northern infrastructure.
Through interactive modules, participants will gain a thorough understanding needed to apply the CAN/CSA S500, CAN/CSA S501, CAN/CSA S502 and CAN/CSA S503 standards to help support asset managers, owners, designers and builders to appropriately exercise their duty of care.
In 2012, CSA Group was selected by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) to develop standards to help address the impact of climate change in Northern Canada as part of the Northern Infrastructure Standardization Initiative (NISI). CSA Group has actively been researching the role standards and codes play in helping to mitigate the risk associated with changing climate and its impact on infrastructure in various regions of Canada since 2005. Our training reflects the latest industry research and the insight of technical experts to help participants apply these standards.
