Compliance Standards for Elevators & Escalators Launching on March 1, 2023

TSSA is hosting a live webinar on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, from 11 a.m. to noon (Eastern Time) to provide attendees with information about the new Compliance Standards for elevators and escalators.

Effective March 1, 2023, elevators (hydraulic and electric/traction) and escalators will be subject to TSSA’s new Compliance Standards:

Compliance Standards define high-risk items for specific devices. They are formatted like a checklist and are intended to drive consistency in TSSA periodic inspections, making it easier for regulated parties to understand their responsibilities. TSSA will only conduct follow-up inspections on high-risk orders found on a periodic inspection.

By focusing the efforts of TSSA and regulated parties on addressing high-risk non-compliances promptly, Compliance Standards for elevators and escalators are designed to help improve the safety of these devices across Ontario.

Join the Compliance Standards Webinar

Webinar attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn about:

  • How Compliance Standards on high-risk items were developed
  • Items that will be examined during periodic inspections
  • Checklists that will be used by TSSA inspectors starting March 1, 2023
  • The difference between high-risk, medium-risk and low-risk non-compliances
  • New inspection reports
  • The process that will be followed if a non-compliance is noted on a periodic inspection report
