4S Consulting Offers Ministry-Approved Working At Heights Training
Occupational Health and Safety Act 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 work at heights of 3 meters (10ft) or more, you need to comply with the Working At Heights training 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”. Going forward, only WAH training from MOL-approved provider would be acceptable. This gave employers a 2-year transitional period to ensure all their construction employees got the WAH training done.
