Employers must ensure that certain workers complete a working at heights training program that has been approved by the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) and delivered by a CPO approved training provider before they can work at heights.
The training requirement is for workers on construction projects who use any of the following methods of fall protection: travel restraint systems, fall restricting systems, fall arrest systems, safety nets and work belts or safety belts.
Ontario now recognizes Newfoundland and Labrador fall protection training from WorkplaceNL as an alternative to Ontario’s working at heights training program.
This training requirement is in the
Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation
and is in addition to training requirements under the Construction Regulation.
Each course meets all relevant government and industry standards and all trainers have been certified. Training courses include both classroom and practical (hands-on) segments, review/recap of materials discussed, question & answer periods and a written evaluation. Upon successful completion, each participant receives a certificate and record of training.
Training can be conducted at our on site multimedia facilities or at individual customer worksites. Customized courses to meet individual company needs are available upon request.
Length of Course: approximately 8 hours
