Health Canada – Consumer Product Safety Directorate

RSI worked with Health Canada’s Consumer Product Safety Directorate during the period in which they became responsible for converting all of their activities to be risk-based as a result of the coming into force of the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.

RSI’s work during this time included the provision of ongoing risk management and risk assessment support; issue characterization, risk perception, and related methodology development; as well as the development and provision of training materials in risk assessment for various Directorate staff. RSI has also provided a range of risk assessment and prioritization support, including the development of triage software tools to support this function within the Directorate.
