Legislation

The Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation (Ontario Regulation 297/13) under the OHS Act clearly sets out WAH as a mandatory requirement.

In addition to these requirements, employers continue to have a duty under subsection 26.2 (1) of O. Reg. 213/91 (Construction Projects) to ensure that workers who may use a fall protection system are adequately trained on the use of the system, and are given adequate oral and written instructions by a competent person.

Employers with workers who are required by O. Reg. 213/91 (Construction Projects) to use any of the fall protection methods listed above must do the following:

  • Ensure the worker completes a working at heights training program that has been approved by the CPO as having met the Working at Heights Training Program Standard applicable at the time of the training;
  • Ensure the training provider delivering the training program was approved by the CPO as having met the Working at Heights Training Provider Standard applicable at the time of training;
  • Ensure the worker’s training is valid and has not expired;
  • Maintain a training record for the worker that includes the worker’s name, the approved training provider’s name, the date the training was completed and the name of the approved training program;
  • And make the training record available to a Ministry of Labour inspector on request.

Who Requires Working at Heights Training

  • Any worker who is required under Ontario Regulation 231/91 (Construction Projects) to use any of the following methods of fall protection:
    • A travel restraint system
    • A fall restricting system
    • A fall arrest system
