Product Safety

Canon considers that safety is one of the most important measurement tools for product quality. Besides quality evaluation, each product is extensively tested for compliance with the relevant harmonised safety standards involving Electrical and Operator Safety. This is then reflected in the CE declaration and marking.

The world-wide policy of Canon Inc. is that each product sold should comply with the Health and Safety requirements and legislation of the countries or areas in which it is to be marketed. For the UK this includes equipment risk assessment carried out under our responsibility as the 'supplier'.

This section is intended to present our customers with the technical information which may be required to facilitate a suitable & sufficient assessment of risks to their employees (or users) under their own responsibility (or duty of care).

Safety Information for Canon Products
It goes without saying that any product destined for the market must be safe in its use.  The 'Safety Information for Canon Products' booklet describes how Canon designs and manufactures equipment with safety for the human being and environment in mind.  It also provides valuable information concerning safe site installation, safe use and some of the effective environmental factors for Canon products.  It is not however, a substitute for a thorough reading of the specific product operation manuals.
