CSA B44-13 - Safety code for elevators and escalators

This is the third edition of ASME A17.1/CSA B44, Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators. It replaces the previous edition of ASME A17.1/CSA B44, published in 2010, and the previous editions of CSA B44, published in 2007, 2004, 2000, 1994, 1990, 1985, 1975, 1971, 1966, 1960, and 1938.
This Code is the result of a joint effort by the CSA B44 Technical Committee on the Elevator Safety Code and the ASME A17 Committee on Elevators and Escalators to harmonize the provisions of CSA B44 and ASME A17.1. This edition of ASME A17.1/CSA B44 consists of the complete ASME A17.1 Code, with additional requirements applicable only in Canadian jurisdictions. These Canadian requirements are prefaced in the body of the Code by the following: "In jurisdictions enforcing the NBCC. . ."
CSA B44 was originally developed to facilitate the implementation of uniform legislation across Canada and to replace the existing legislation, which had proved inadequate for prevailing elevator practices. The primary purpose of the Code is to establish minimum requirements, suitable for adoption by regulatory authorities throughout Canada, for the design, installation, and maintenance of elevators, escalators, dumbwaiters, moving walks, and material lifts. It is also intended as a standard reference for architects, consulting engineers, elevator manufacturers, and building owners.

Ontario Electrical Safety Report - 12th Edition

For more than eleven years, the Ontario Electrical Safety Report (OESR) has been produced by The Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) to provide a comprehensive assessment of electrical fatalities and incidents in Ontario. The Report is used by ESA to better understand the dynamics of electrical safety. From these insights come strategies to improve electrical safety in the province.
The OESR provides a comprehensive assessment of electrical fatalities and incidents that occur in Ontario. Data presented in this report has been compiled from multiple sources, investigations, and root cause analyses. This report is broadly used by safety stakeholders and business operators to gain a better understanding of potential electrical risks and high-risks areas, and to encourage the development of initiatives to improve the state of electrical safety in Ontario.
