HRAI is pleased to work in conjunction with the Ontario Chapter presidents and senior TSSA officials to organize important consultations on the direction of TSSA. Please plan to attend and share this information with those in your networks.

Given the changes, TSSA is making and the potential impacts across HRAI’s membership and the sector in general, we are holding four larger, regional consultations across Ontario. 

The goals of these consultations are:

  • To inform our members as much as possible of TSSA’s changes
  • To give you the opportunity to provide input. 

Speakers and topics include:

  • Phil Simeon, Director, Regulatory Policy:
    • New Business Model: TSSA is working to redesign its existing business model including examining its current fee structure for all its activities. 
    • Modern Regulator: TSSA is moving towards proactively promoting a culture of safety and compliance. A key aspect of this change is an increased in the analysis of available data to identify organizations that most need the help and education regarding compliance and to identify devices with higher safety risks. 
  • Sandra Cooke, P.Eng. Ombudsman:
    • Ombudsman and Whistle Blower Policy: Members were reminded that TSSA has an Ombudsman Officer. This role exists to assist stakeholders in resolving or addressing any issue prior to initiating more formalized processes.
  • The local TSSA inspector in the area.
