Elevating Devices Safety Regulations Amendment: Opportunity for Input

Technical Safety BC is putting forward a request to amend the Elevating Devices Safety Regulations. We are asking to adopt the most recent versions of the CSA code for lifts for persons with physical disabilities (CSA B355-09 see Appendix A).

The reason for recommending the adoption of this CSA Code is to help safeguard against the risk of accidents associated with access and operation of elevating devices for persons with physical disabilities.

Please take the time to read the Discussion Paper and provide Technical Safety BC with your feedback. You can download a PDF feedback form and email, mail or fax to the address listed below. Or provide immediate feedback through our web form. Feedback is requested by June 30, 2011.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact Jim Allaway, Leader, Stakeholder Engagement Programs, at our corporate office:
