About TSSA safety inspectors

Members of OPSEU/SEFPO Local 546, Safety Inspectors at the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) inspect everything from amusement park rides, food trucks and elevators, to fuel burning equipment, propane dispensing stations, boiler plate vessels (BVP) and elements in nuclear power plants.

They have been negotiating their first contract since joining OPSEU/SEFPO in 2021. Their employer has made it clear at the bargaining table that they have no respect for our members and their working conditions. We need more safety inspectors, regular inspections, and more accountability!
