    Counterfeit safety products can pose hazard to unsuspecting workers - by Andrew Wareing, Canadian Occupational Safety magazine
    In most cases, 99.9 per cent of the products with CSA labels out there are legitimate,' says CSA spokesman Anthony Toderian. But more and more, as people become more aware of counterfeiting issues that have appeared in the last five years, we're seeing more and more (counterfeit) marks on everything from plumbing equipment to safety boots...we're seeing these things more and more and they present everything from a shock hazard to injuries and fatalities.

    It (label counterfeiting) is a concern for CSA because it may undermine the confidence in our mark, so we have a zero-tolerance policy,' he says. If we come across a product that has a counterfeit sticker, we will pursue any legal actions at our disposal to prosecute anyone counterfeiting our mark.'
