The National Public Safety Advisory Committee (NPSAC) plays a distinct role in the development and application of the codes and standards used in Canada. It is the only national body working at the policy level to promote the common adoption and consistent administration of safety codes and standards for the following discipline areas:
- elevating devices; passenger ropeways (i.e.: ski lifts);
- amusement rides;
- fuel (i.e.: oil, natural gas and propane);
- boilers and pressure vessels; and
- electrical safety.
