From the Canadian Elevator Contractors Association (CECA) - a non-profit organization of Elevator Contractors and Suppliers.
We wish to alert you to the ongoing TSSA Inspector Strike and the ramifications this may have on elevator service in your members' buildings during this strike.
Elevators require TSSA elevator inspections to be put into service or back into service when various factors are in place. This includes:
Please also note that a clear TSSA elevator report may not be provided as required for closing the sale of a building or refinance of a building if the TSSA inspector is not available. While the TSSA elevator inspectors are on strike there will be minimal inspections by TSSA management on a safety priority basis.
We would like to make your organization aware of the situation because it may affect your members tenants and the operation of their buildings. While CECA has no influence on the inspectors or TSSA, we felt it was important to let you know of the current conditions surrounding elevator inspections and how it may affect your members.
