Many provisions in The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 2020 mandate the use of approved standards (such as approved agencies, designs, equipment, methods, standards or training). Section 1-2(1)(a) and (b) of the regulations define 'approved' as:
a) approved by an agency acceptable to the director for use in accordance with any terms and conditions determined by the agency; or
b) approved by a certificate of the director subject to any terms and conditions the director considers appropriate.
This list can be referenced as a guide to what constitutes an 'approved' standard. This list will be updated on occasion as standards are updated or new information becomes available.
