4S Consulting Offers Ministry-Approved Working At Heights Training

On April 1, 2015

OHSA defines a workplace as any land, premises, location, or thing at, upon, or near which a worker works. In simple words, any place where a WORKER works is his or her WORKPLACE.  Therefore, if you are working at a CONSTRUCTION SITE, it will obviously be considered your WORKPLACE by the OHSA going by the above definition.

Moreover, if you are Working At Heights of 3 meters (10ft) or more, you need to comply with the Working At Heights training compliance requirement from MOL-approved provider before OCT 01, 2017.

Construction workers who are required to wear fall protection equipment were mandated to also complete an MOL approved Working at Heights (WAH) training program. The previous Fall Protection training would be “grandfathered” and going forward only Working at Heights would be acceptable. This gave employers a 2-year transitional period to ensure all their construction employees got trained with Working at Heights.

For more information visit the M.O.L website.

Working at Heights Deadline Extended

After receiving requests from worker representatives in the construction sector, and in dialogue with employers and health and safety organizations, the Ministry of Labour has lengthened the transition period by six months in specific circumstances.

Please note that although the grace period has been extended, you must be enrolled in an upcoming Working at Heights session (scheduled for before October 1st, 2017) and must present written proof of the enrollment to a Minisitry of Labour inspector.
