Working at Heights Training

 

On April 1, 2015, some workers will have to complete a Working at Heights training program that has been approved by the Chief Prevention Officer before they can work at heights.

This new training requirement is for workers on construction projects, that use any of the five methods of fall protection below:

  • travel restraint systems
  • fall restricting systems
  • fall arrest systems
  • safety nets
  • work belts or safety belts
There will be a transition period (2 years) for workers who already meet the existing fall protection training requirements set out in section 26.2 of the Construction Regulation. These workers will have until April 1, 2017 to complete an approved working at heights training program.

The new training requirements in the Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation will be in addition to the current training requirements under the Construction Regulation.

 *Equipment World's Working at Heights Training Program is currently pending approval*
