Roughneck August 2015

One day, a CSA manager was having a heated argument with a CSA engineer in that parking lot.  The argument was hard to miss.  It featured colourful language and a lot of shouting, and it was caught on film.  Earlier, the CSA had taken receipt of a new product for testing.  It’s what they do, they subject new products to vigorous safety testing and, if it passes these tests, CSA certifies that the product is safe for public use, acceptable for import into Canada, and for export elsewhere.  Some of CSA’s tests are duration performance tests, they take time and can’t be shortened without invalidating the test results.
