Working at Heights Training & Refresher Training Too!
PLEASE NOTE: Be assured, we are taking every precaution to combat COVID-19 transmission and safeguard all involved in WHSC-scheduled Working at Heights (WAH) training classrooms. To this end, all participants are required to wear a mask throughout training and show proof of full vaccination upon arrival to training beginning September 22, 2021. Course instructors will meet this requirement too.
For those who successfully completed WAH training between February 28 and August 31, 2017, the Ministry of Labour has lifted their one-year extension for completion of mandatory WAH refresher training. The validity period, normally three years, would have ended last year. These workers must now participate in WAH refresher training prior to the fourth anniversary of completing the initial WAH training. This is in addition to the worker cohort who completed their WAH training after September 1, 2017, and who are approaching their third anniversary.
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.
