Working at Heights training and WAH Refresher Training

Working at Heights training and WAH Refresher Training


Effective March 27, 2020, the validity period of Working at Heights training for workers who successfully completed an approved program between February 28, 2017 and August 31, 2017 has been temporarily extended. The validity period has been extended to four (4) years from the current three (3) years.

For more information, read the amending regulation O. Reg. 96/20.

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 a CPO-approved provider before OCT 01, 2017.

Construction workers who are required to wear fall protection equipment were mandated to also complete an CPO-approved WAH training program. The previous Fall Protection training would be “grandfathered”. Going forward, only WAH training from a CPO-approved provider would be acceptable. This gave employers a 2-year transitional period to ensure all their construction employees got the WAH training done.
