Home Elevator and Lift Safety

Home elevator and lift safety information from Ontario’s Technical Standards and Safety Authority.

If you need to modify your home because you have lost mobility, strength, or agility, a lift or an elevator can help. Remember that it is important to make sure that this equipment is installed correctly so that it does not cause a safety risk.

The Technical Safety and Standards Authority (TSSA) does not regulate home elevators. However, these devices must meet Canadian Standards Association (CSA) codes for manufacturing, installation, and maintenance to protect the safety of the people who use them.
