WORKING AT HEIGHTS COURSE FOR CONSTRUCTION

We are proud to offer Total Rescue’s (PRO-34962) CPO Approved Working at Heights Program.

As of April 1, 2015, Ministry of Labour, Training & Skills Development (MLTSD) requires that employers of workers on construction projects ensure that their workers complete an approved Working at Heights training program.

The Ministry of Labour, Training & Skills Development (MLTSD) introduced a Working at Heights training program standard and training provider standard to ensure that workers were receiving proper Working at Heights training.

The GOAL of this training is to provide the basic knowledge needed to recognize and avoid hazards associated with working at heights. This training program will help prepare participants to:

1) explain their rights and responsibilities when working at heights

2) work at heights safely and in compliance with all required regulations

3) select, inspect, and use industry-standard personal fall arrest equipment, including a harness and lanyard.
