The Mechanical and Electrical Hazards Division endeavours to protect the Canadian public from potential safety hazards that may be associated with a variety of children's products, household products, and recreational and sports products. Children's products include children's furniture, child care equipment, toys and related products, as well as children's clothing and accessories. Furniture, gardening equipment, and blind and curtain cords fall under the scope of household products. The category of recreational and sports products includes, but is not limited to, playground equipment, bicycles, and swimming pools, hot tubs, and spas. Most home electrical appliances are controlled by provincial electrical codes that reference Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada (ULC) standards. Potential product-related safety hazards include choking, strangulation, suffocation, puncture, entanglement, entrapment, and fire hazards.
