Not only are we helping to keep Ontario safe, we’re working to keep our industry
Under our Boilers and Pressure Vessels (BPV) Program, our team regulates all pressure-retaining
systems manufactured or used in Ontario. They review boilers, pressure vessels,
and piping systems during the manufacturing process and again, once these systems
are operational in locations such as schools, hospitals, factories, offices, and
even nuclear power plants.
As a member of the National Board of Boilers and Pressure Vessel Inspectors and
an Authorized Inspection Agency under American Society of Mechanical Engineers,
our team works with industry and insurance companies to protect the safety of the
public by ensuring the safe design, manufacture, installation, operation, and periodic
inspection of all boiler & pressure vessels in Ontario.
They perform device and system design reviews as well as periodic, repair and alteration
inspections of uninsured boilers and pressure vessels. Our Boiler & Pressure Vessels
team also provide engineering and inspection services to the industry concerning
the transportation of dangerous goods such as propane tanks that are dependent upon
Their oversight is multi-disciplinary even includes the certification of insurance
company inspector staff and provision of technical training seminars across the
Province. Our knowledge and practical expertise drives the development and maintenance
of the standards and codes that impact the safety of all of us in the Province.
Our Inspectors’ in-depth knowledge of standards and codes is appreciated and relied
upon by our customers. They are often considered an integral part of the team at
our customers’ sites, providing regular review of equipment and documentation as
well as periodic repair and alteration inspections.
Our Inspectors are self-motivated, born problem-solvers who relish the fact that
every day provides a unique set of challenges and environments to engage their experience
and knowledge. BPV Inspectors may come from a variety of backgrounds, among them
welders and quality control supervisors. Our qualified BPV Inspectors have at least
five years of experience working with boilers and pressure vessels, and are Authorized
Inspectors, having received their Ontario Certificates of Competency, InService
Commission, and New Construction Endorsement from the National Board of Boilers
and Pressure Vessel Inspectors.
For our Engineers, this is an opportunity to put their expertise to work in a stable
office environment. Ontario has some of the most stringent regulations in the world,
and as a result, our Engineers receive and review equipment and system designs from
all over the globe. It’s a rewarding experience to help designs become fully realized.
The work of our Engineers influences the future direction of the regulations and
