WHSC offers specially-priced working at heights training throughout the summer
Many are taking a break from busy work schedules this summer, but not Workers Health & Safety Centre. Throughout the summer, WHSC extends its specially-priced working at heights training in locations across the province.
According to the Ministry of Labour, the construction sector accounts for seven per cent of Ontario employment but yields 29 per cent of workplace fatalities. Falls from heights are the leading cause of traumatic worker deaths and critical injuries in construction.

As of April 1, 2015, Ontario regulation requires employers to ensure untrained or inadequately trained construction workers complete a Ministry of Labour-approved, working at heights training program before they work at heights and use fall protection equipment and systems.

WHSC was one of the first organizations to be approved by the MOL. We continuously schedule programs in communities throughout Ontario, adding new courses as existing courses fill. Summer is no exception. Our comprehensive one-day course is also:

  • Specially priced to ease access
  • Designed to ensure critical learning takes place
  • Delivered by experienced instructors in the trades
  • Available for booking at a suitable venue of your choosing
  • Backed by complete records of training and replacement cards when needed.

With enough participants and an appropriate training venue we are also able to work with construction sector unions and employers to bring training right to you. This now includes French training materials for participants and program delivery by a WHSC-qualified, French-speaking instructor.

Don’t wait to complete this potentially life-saving training. WHSC is ready to help now.
