Fundamentals of Fall Protection


| Find Course Dates and Locations |

Ministry of Labour Accredited Certification

As many jobs require working at height, the Occupation Health and Safety Act (OHSA) mandates employers to ensure adequate training and equipment is provided to employees who are exposed to fall hazards.

Every day in Ontario, falls at the workplace occur with significant and potentially long lasting financial and physical consequences. In most, if not all cases, these injuries and deaths are preventable by the proper use of fall protection systems in conjunction with professional training.

Specially the OHSA states that “an employer shall ensure that a worker who may use a fall protection system is adequately trained in its use.” OHSA Inspectors have the authority to visit any job site and assess that workers have access to and are trained properly in fall protection systems.


Elevation Aerial Design and Consulting Inc. is an Accredited Training Provider of the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association. Our specialized instructors are able to come to your workplace and provide custom fall protection courses that meet the OHSA standards with adaptations to your site specific needs. Please contact us for a price quote and needs assessment if you would like to book group training for your employees.

  4. Food and Nutrition: Participants are responsible for their own food. It is recommended you bring your own lunch, snacks and water for the day as leaving the facility for lunch may delay your return and ability to review class notes that lead into afternoon practical training sessions. The course will proceed on schedule and many participants benefit from networking with other trainees to share their experience over the lunch period.

This is not mandatory as all fall protection equipment will be available, however, it is important you are familiar with inspecting and maintaining your own personal safety equipment.
