Amusement Rides & Devices

The Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan (TSASK) inspects and regulates Amusement Rides & Devices in Saskatchewan ensuring they are in accordance with the Amusement Ride Safety Regulations set out by the Government of Saskatchewan.

Amusement Ride Safety establishes and enforces technical safety standards through design registration, inspection and licensing of each amusement ride or device. 

TSASK reviews and registers new ride designs, issues licenses for each ride & device for the current operating season, and performs acceptance/routine inspections and incident investigations.

New amusement rides & devices are inspected upon being registered in the province, and at the start of every new season, or following an alteration. If a safety deficiency is discovered, TSASK's inspectors will evaluate the amount of risk and issue compliance orders to the owners/operators. If an incident occurs, TSASK will investigate and remove any unsafe ride or device from operation.

TSASK inspectors are certified by the National Association of Amusement Ride Safety Officials (NAARSO) and the Amusement Industry Manufacturers & Suppliers (AIMS International).
 


New to Amusement Rides & Devices in 2021

All owners of Class A, B & C Amusement Rides & Devices will require a yearly Contractor Licence to operate, install & perform maintenance and testing of amusement devices that are licensed by TSASK.

The licensed Contractor is responsible for ensuring compliance with all relevant regulations, and all applicable safety orders and directives.
