Working at Heights replaces Fall Protection
All workers who use fall protection on a construction project must complete an approved working at heights training program. This includes workers who met the fall protection training requirements of the Construction Projects Regulation prior to April 1, 2015.
This initial WAH training is valid for three years. For continued compliance, employers must ensure workers they employ complete a Ministry-approved WAH refresher program.
