Working at Heights Training & Refresher Training Too!
PLEASE NOTE: Given the nature of Working at Heights training Workers Health & Safety Centre until recently has not scheduled this training during the COVID-19 crisis. While we explore all options, we are moving ahead in a very limited way. Be sure to check back in the days and weeks as more training comes available.
For those who successfully completed Working at Heights (WAH) training between February 28 and August 31, 2017, the Ministry of Labour has granted a one-year extension to complete mandatory WAH refresher training. The validity period, normally three years, would have ended this year. Workers and their employers will need to ensure WAH Refresher training is completed in 2021, by the four-year anniversary of the original training date.
Ontario regulation requires employers to ensure all construction workers in their employ complete a WAH training program approved by the Ministry of Labour's Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) before working at heights and using a fall protection system. For continued compliance, employers must ensure workers they employ complete an approved WAH refresher program.
Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) is a leading provider of WAH training and refresher training too. Our programs are CPO-approved, affordably priced and delivered by experienced instructors in the trades.
WHSC will begin to schedule this essential training as restrictions lift and we are safely able to do so.
