Workers receive Working at Heights training in Ontario

Working at Heights Training & Refresher Training Too!

 

PLEASE NOTE: We are now scheduling a limited number of in-person Working at Heights training courses. Register early to ensure your spot. Be assured, we are taking every precaution to combat COVID-19 transmission and safeguard participants and instructors in our classrooms.

For those who successfully completed Working at Heights (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.
