CECA Members Hear Recent Development Online From TSSA

Members of the Canadian Elevator Contractors Association (CECA), during an online meeting on November 11, were advised on the latest information for the Ontario Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) and its position on safety for the province’s elevating device regulations. TSSA experts, including Dean McLellan, David Witt and Roger Neate, answered questions from contractors covering a range of issues. Some of the topics included answers to questions seeking specifics on CSA B44:2019 and upcoming adoptions; representative on the Elevating Devices Advisory Council; tracking contractors’ information regarding owners failing to report Section 36 incidents and possible non-reporting what’s required; and the COVID-19 halt of Section 36 education offerings by TSSA. TSSA next gave a discussion on its planned updates. Among these were policies regarding elevator installations in deep pits; COVID requirements for those working in the public; proving that company mechanics who have not been COVID-vaccinated have otherwise taken the rapid test (those who have not “won’t be in the field”); compliance standards on high risk as opposed to low and medium risks (four rules are risked high), and companies found to have been involved with a high risk must address concerns within 14 days; and escalator and elevator compliant standards. CECA board members at the meeting included Catharine Bothwell, executive director, and Paul Pettener, president, Alcor Elevator, and CECA Central Region chair.
