WHSC ensures timely access to mandatory Working at Heights Training

WHSC ensures timely access to mandatory <i>Working at Heights</i> Training
Worried about missing work or risking work site shut downs because of new requirements for mandatory Working at Heights training? No need for concern.

WHSC is ready to meet the tremendous demand for this potentially life-saving training. We are running scheduled Working at Heights training programs in communities province-wide, adding courses on an almost daily basis. We are also offering a special introductory price of $90 (plus HST) per participant.

With enough participants and an appropriate training venue, WHSC can even deliver training on site.

Falls from heights are the leading cause of worker injury and death in the construction sector. To help put a stop to this unacceptable situation, new regulatory changes in Ontario will require employers to ensure untrained or inadequately trained construction workers complete a Ministry of Labour-approved, working at heights training program before they can work at heights and use fall protection equipment and systems.

This requirement comes into force April 1, 2015. Fall protection includes travel restraint systems, fall restricting systems, fall arrest systems, safety nets and work belts or safety belts.

WHSC Working at Heights training was one of the first to receive MOL approval. Our comprehensive one-day course is designed to ensure real learning takes place. After successfully completing our program, participants receive a WHSC record of training card valid for three years. And because WHSC keeps all records of training, WHSC can provide replacement cards and complete training transcripts upon request.
