The Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) is seeking feedback on a risk-based regulatory framework in Ontario by May 5, 2019.
The provincial government has made changes to the Technical Standards and Safety Act, 2000 to allow for the creation of alternate rules for the Operating Engineers Regulation.
The changes are intended to implement recommendations made by a panel of industry stakeholders to allow for adoption of a risk-based regulatory framework.
Under this approach, businesses would have the option to either comply with the alternate rules or continue adhering to the requirements in the current regulation.
Those interested in providing feedback on the framework can review the proposal summary and provide their comments by completing the feedback form.
The detailed proposals are also available as: Path 1 Risk-based regulatory framework and Path 2 RSMP Regulatory Framework
The feedback form and Proposal Summary are available here: www.engagetssa.org/oeregreview.
