Ask TSSA: Improving Fuel Contractor Audits

In this edition of Ask TSSA, Mark Westen, TSSA Fuels Inspector and Training/Certification Advisor, provides a few quick answers in this short clip.

TSSA’s Fuels Safety Program conducts contractor audits to reinforce provincial standards, which all fuel professionals must know and follow, as per the safety laws in Ontario. The audit provides assurance that you are performing your work in a compliant, skillful and thorough manner. It also confirms that you, your employees and sub-contractors have obtained all required licenses, certificates and registrations.

Thanks to helpful feedback from contractors, TSSA is enhancing the process with three distinct improvements: proportional auditing; regulatory attestations; and the creation of a TSSA Audit Administrator. The intent is to focus on TSSA inspection of contractor work-in-the-field, and enhance safety by providing better oversight of compliance.
