Working at heights training schedule expanded to serve you!

Need to get into compliance fast? Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) has expanded Working at Heights (WAH) training and refresher courses into more communities across Ontario.
 
Regulations in the province require employers ensure workers who work on construction projects complete a Ministry of Labour, Chief Prevention Officer-approved, working at heights training program before they work at heights and use fall protection equipment and systems. And for continued compliance, employers must ensure workers they employ complete an approved WAH refresher program every three years. WHSC is Ontario’s official designated WAH trainer with more than 35+ years of experience in occupational health and safety training, delivered from a worker perspective.
 
It is important to keep in mind too construction projects include more than those on construction sites. They can also occur in factories, schools, restaurants, offices, film sets and hospitals. Every worker deserves training, to work in a safe environment and to come home unharmed.
