W254 - Health and Safety Advisory: WAH Site-Specific Training

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) of Ontario. However, CPO-approved WAH training is only the first step. Knowing the specific fall hazards on site and how to protect against those hazards is the key to keeping workers safe and reducing the number of fall-related incidents.

This advisory contains helpful information on providing site-specific WAH training to workers. 2 pages. June 2018.
