MOL Extends the deadline for completion of Working at Heights
training to October 1, 2017.
Employers will have until then to ensure that
workers successfully complete a CPO-approved working at heights
The extension applies only to experienced workers - those who
completed fall protection training prior to April 1, 2015 - who are
enrolled in a CPO-approved working at heights training program
scheduled to be completed before October 1, 2017.
Exposure to fall hazards in construction is a daily occurrence, but
it doesn’t have to be! Unfortunately falls happen too often, and are
the leading cause of fatalities in the construction industry.
Our Working At Heights Safety Training program is broken down into two main modules:
basic theory and practical equipment. The basic theory module
discusses working at heights hazards, controls, introduces the
learner to the basics of fall protection, and ladder safety.
The practical equipment module focuses on the
application and use of the different fall protection systems, their
components, and their limitations. Learners must demonstrate how to
inspect the equipment, don and doff the harness, and maintain 100%
tie-off. These are performance outcomes and must be achieved
Five things you need to know about the New
Working at Heights Safety Training Standard in Ontario
