As of April 1, 2015, workers on construction projects must complete a working at heights training program that has been approved by Ontario’s Chief Prevention Officer if they are required to use any of the following methods of fall protection: travel restraint system, fall restricting system, fall arrest system, safety net, work belt or safety belt.
The Working at Heights Training Program Standard has a modular format to allow for core theory training to be completed separately from practical training elements. There are two modules: Working at Heights Basic Theory and Working at Heights Practical.
After successful completion of the course all participants will be able to explain their rights and responsibilities with regard to working at heights, work at heights safely and in compliance with regulatory requirements, and select, inspect, and use industry-standard personal fall arrest equipment, including a harness and lanyard.
The program consists of a written knowledge evaluation and a hands-on practical evaluation. Upon successful completion of both written and practical evaluations, participants will receive a 3 year working at heights certification.
All participants will be required to bring CSA footwear, CSA eye wear, and a CSA hard hat to the training sessions along with valid photo ID.
