Falls are a main cause of workplace fatalities in Ontario.
Employers in Ontario must ensure that workers on construction projects who may use certain methods of fall protection, successfully complete “working at heights” training that meets the new training program and provider standards and that they keep this training up to date.
Elevation Aerial Design and Consulting offers a Working at Heights training program that meets the requirements of employers throughout Ontario. Training can be provided on site at your location or at one of our training facilities, offered in both a private (group) and public training format and can be scheduled according to your specific needs.
The new Ministry of Labour training requirement for working at heights is for workers on construction projects who use any of the following methods of fall protection: travel restraint system, fall restricting systems, fall arrest systems, safety nets and work belts or safety belts. Elevation’s approved training program provides these workers with the basic fall prevention information they require to work safely in areas where they may be exposed to fall hazards.
Our comprehensive Working at Heights training program consists of a combination of classroom and skills-based learning activities. Participants receive the most up-to-date information with hands-on instruction from our professional instructors who are all experienced in working at heights.
In addition to Working at Heights training, the Ministry of Labour requires that employers ensure that workers are adequately trained on the use of specific equipment used at their workplace. Elevation Aerial can look after all of your working at heights needs, providing employers and businesses with consultation and design of safety plans, installation of safety systems for working at heights, inspections, maintenance and equipment supply.
Elevation brings expertise from various fields of working at heights and high angle rescue. We offer a full-service approach to all your fall arrest/restraint and safety equipment needs. Our specialized knowledge of fall protection systems will help you with your product selections and ensure your operations meet all Ministry of Labour standards.
