Elevator Regulations in Ontario

Elevator Regulations in OntarioThe Canadian and Provincial Governments have come together in creating an institution dedicated to ensuring the safety and quality of elevators and lifting devices across the country. This authority operates with complete and total independence of any other bodies, and is dedicated to ensuring the safety and continued safe operations of any and all lifting devices and elevators whether commercial, industrial, residential or private. Across the country, there are thousands of regulations by which an elevator company must comply, and by which the Toronto Elevator company has come to regard as the complete guidelines on ensuring total safety and quality. There are hundreds of regulations that govern the production, operation, maintenance and safety requirements of residential passenger elevators, stair lift devices, commercial elevators, freight elevators, dumbwaiters, accessibility elevators, conveyor belts, moving sidewalks and many other types of motion and elevating devices. These regulations also define the strict rules under which these devices are inspected, approved and certified by operation in any environment. Existence of such strict rules is thought at times to be the only reason why lifting devices have such a safe record in comparison to many other industries. Compliance is a big part of ensuring the safety of those using these devices.

Along with the manufacturing, inspection, maintenance and repair guidelines, the Technical Standards and Safety Authority also provides emergency guidelines, equipment guarding requirements and incident reporting procedures that are related to lifting devices. Around the operation of such devices is a complete and total effort to ensure a continuous improvement effort that covers all angles. The contributions of many in the industry have provided the improvement the TSSA looks for, and also offered a sense of accomplishment for those in Ontario, with one of the safest records of lifting devices and elevators around the world.
