Working at Heights

The Working at Heights training requirement was introduced in April 2015 and the Chief Prevention Officer issued standards for training programs and training providers.

The requirement requires “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” to successfully complete a 6 1/2 hour (1 day) workshop addressing the causes, effects and controls of hazards on construction projects.  When certified, workers are required to attend a 1/2 day refresher training every three years.
