As of April 1, 2015, certain workers will need to complete a working at heights training program before they can work at heights.
The new training requirement is for workers on construction projects who use any of the following methods of fall protection:
- travel restraint systems
- fall restricting systems
- fall arrest systems
- safety nets
- work belts or safety belts
There is a two year transition period for workers who already meet the existing fall protection training requirements set out in section 26.2 of the Construction Regulations. These workers will have until April 1, 2017 to complete an approved working at heights training program.
Auspice Safety Inc.’s approved trainers are available to provide the training. Please contact us at 613-558-5385 or emails us at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for the next Working at Heights training session.
