As of April 1, 2015, certain workers will need to complete a working at heights training program that has been approved by the Chief Prevention Officer 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 Regulation.
These workers will have until April 1, 2017 to complete an approved working at heights training program.
