Health & Safety Management Systems Webinar

Please join NCHCA, OCA and CLAEO, on Tuesday, March 30, 2021 from 10:00 to 11:30, for a panel discussion with Q&A on the Health & Safety Management Systems acceptable to the City of Ottawa. The panel of health and safety experts will discuss the pros and cons of the three acceptable systems.

As background, in January 2020, the City of Ottawa issued a Technical Bulletin advising that it is phasing in a requirement that an acceptable occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS), validated by an external third party, must be in place prior to a contract being awarded. The Technical Bulletin confirms what an OHSMS is, why the City is introducing this requirement, and which OHSMS the City will accept.

Read the Technical Bulletin

Acceptable OHSMS are:

  • ISO 45001:2018
  • CSA Z45001:19
  • COR 2020

Timelines for certification are as follows:

  • January 1, 2023 – contracts over $10 million
  • January 1, 2025 – contracts over $1 million
  • January 1, 2026 – contracts and subcontracts over $100 thousand
