City of Toronto changing language to specify acceptance of ISO 45001
The City of Toronto is making changes to improve clarity surrounding acceptable safety accreditations for businesses interested in bidding on city projects.
In a statement sent to Canadian Occupational Safety, the city says it is working on updating its contract language.
“While the City’s acceptance of approved equivalents to the COR program is already outlined on our website and in our tender document, we are currently working to update our Request for Tender document to provide better clarity on this requirement – including specifying that ISO and other equivalents are acceptable alternatives. We plan to finalize this update in the first quarter of 2024,” reads the statement.
