Is Working At Heights Training Mandatory in Belleville?

As of April 1, 2015, the new Working at Heights Training Standard became mandatory for all Ontario construction projects regulated by the Regulations for Construction Projects. The new standard legislates specific requirements for specialized working at heights training, as well as for training providers.  The Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation (Ontario Regulation 297/13) under the occupational Heath & Safety Act clearly sets out Working at Heights as a mandatory requirement.

Working at heights training are valid for three (3) years from the date of successful completion of an approved program. In order to maintain the validity of training, learners must take a refresher training within three (3) years of the date of successfully completing a CPO approved working at heights program.  Furthermore, sub-section 26.2 (1) of O. Reg. 213/91 (Construction Projects) states that employers will continue to have a duty to ensure that their workers who may use a fall protection system are trained properly through oral and written instructions provided by a competent person.

Please note that the Occupational Health and Safety Act defines a workplace as any land, premises, location or thing at, upon, in, or near which a worker works.  Therefore, the Occupational Health and Safety Act considers a construction site as the workplace for construction workers. Hence, employers should follow the construction regulations falling under the Act. Further, the regulations clearly state that working at heights is a mandatory requirement in Ontario.
