Working at Heights


View Courses & Buy
Employers must ensure workers on construction projects complete a working at heights training program approved by the Ontario Ministry of Labour before a worker uses a fall restricting system, fall arrest system, safety net, work belt or safety belt. This comprehensive working at heights training program has this approval. The program is divided into two modules. In module one, participants learn about the hazards of working at heights, basic rights and duties along with relevant regulations governing fall arrest hazards, fall protection equipment and working at heights projects. They will also be introduced to the use, inspection, limitations, storage and procedures for travel restraint, fall restricting and fall arrest systems. In module two, participants get hands-on training on fall protection equipment and systems. They will also explore key components of a fall rescue plan and emergency procedures. Note: Training participants must also complete a written program evaluation as required by the MOL’s Working at Heights Training Program Standard. * French program available.

Working at Heights Refresher

Employers must ensure construction workers complete MOL-approved working at heights (WAH) training before they start work at heights and use fall protection equipment. Additionally, these workers must complete an approved refresher training every three years thereafter. The WHSC MOL-approved Working at Heights Refresher program involves a review of basic awareness ranging from significant employer and supervisor obligations to working at heights-related hazards, along with safeguards and procedures designed to protect workers. This training also involves a more practical review of the functionality and safety aspects of fall protection equipment and systems including a hands-on practicum. Successful completion of this refresher training will re-validate WAH training compliance for three years.

NOTE: Ministry of Labour requires provincially-issued photo identification (ID) and proof of prior Working at Heights training for all participants of Working at Heights Refresher training. Please bring this ID and proof to the training course. As proof the Ministry prefers your Ministry of Labour-issued Working at Heights training wallet card. However, if you completed your initial training with WHSC and your name and address remains the same as when you first trained with us, WHSC can supply this proof to the Ministry for you. If your initial training was provided by another organization though, then along with your ID, you must bring to training your Ministry of Labour-issued card. If you have misplaced your card, call the Ministry Toll-free at 1-877-202-0008 and ask them to provide you with your Working at Heights learner number. Then bring this number with you to training.

Working at Heights Awareness


Request Quote
In workplaces where work at heights is a potential hazard, workers, supervisors, members of joint health and safety committees and health and safety representatives will benefit from this program. It is designed to equip participants with an understanding of relevant legislation, physical hazards that contribute to the dangers of working at heights and methods of controlling related hazards. The program also addresses safety equipment such as guardrails and fall protection systems along with their limitations and precautions for their use. Participants will also learn about the selection and proper use of other equipment such as ladders and scaffolds. This program includes a demonstration of the proper use of a full body harness. This exercise is for awareness only. Workers working at heights, especially in the construction sector, require more comprehensive training. (See our 6.5 hour Working At Heights program.)
