Health and Safety Advisory: WAH Site-Specific Training

Product ID: W254

Falling from heights continues to be a leading cause of injuries and fatalities in the Ontario construction industry. Despite the fact that working at heights (WAH) training is mandatory and must meet a provincial standard, workers are still dying or suffering life-altering injuries.

All Ontario workers on a construction project who may use a method of fall protection to protect themselves from a fall hazard must receive WAH training that has been approved by the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO). In addition, a WAH refresher course must be taken every three years.

However, an important part of WAH training that is often overlooked is the requirement for the employer to provide site-specific WAH training. This advisory contains helpful information on providing site-specific WAH training to workers. 2 pages. Revised August 2020.
