NS: Technical Safety Advisory Board
The province of Nova Scotia is in the process of reinstating the Technical Safety Advisory Board that was in place in the past.
The purpose of the Advisory Board is to advise the Minister of Labour and Advanced Education on major system-wide initiatives, concerns or problems identified by the minister or his department for the Advisory Board’s consideration. These may include, but are not limited to: safety; certification and training of persons involved in regulated work; incident prevention; matters arising from non-profit organizations with mandates related to the Technical Safety Act; the issuance, expiry, suspension and revocation of licences, registrations, permits or certifications; and any other matter as determined by the minister.
The department contacted the CPA to find stakeholders from our industry to fill a position on the Advisory Board. The CPA reached out to members and we are pleased to announce that two very qualified candidates from the propane industry in Nova Scotia sent in their applications – Rick Nolan from Wilson Fuel and Allan Frail from Superior Propane. Once the selected candidate is announced, we will share the news. We believe this participation will go a long way to providing more knowledge to the Board on propane activities.
The CPA and Nova Scotia members are looking forward to working with the Advisory Board.
