The SAE regulation now in Effect for the scaffolding in Canada .
The new Suspended Access Equipment Regulations went into effect on January 1, 2017.
Following our meeting with the Ministry of Labour in November, the Association was told a Guidance Document would be prepared and released to the industry by December 15, 2016. Then, in December, we were informed the document might be ready by the end of December.
January has now come and gone, and the industry is still without this critical document, and still without clarification on the 11 points we highlighted to the Ministry.
The Association has argued that it is impossible for our industry to comply with the new regulations, without properly understanding the intent of the Ministry in the Regulations.Last week Roger Marsland, sent the Ministry of Labour a letter urging them to finalize the Guidance Document
