Fatality Notice: IHSA has learned of a construction-related fatality in Sudbury involving a construction worker securing a transport trailer load. One workplace fatality is one too many, regardless of the sector, industry, or occupation. Please take a moment to think about those who have died or been injured on the job and re-establish a commitment to the prevention of injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.

Working at Heights – Fundamentals of Fall Prevention

Did You Know?

IHSA's Working at Heights—Fundamentals of Fall Prevention meets the Working at Heights Training Standard. Learn more.

Infrastructure Health & Safety Association
 

This course provides workers with the basic fall prevention information they require to work safely in areas where they may be exposed to fall hazards. Participants receive the most up-to-date information with hands-on instruction from industry experts and trained adult educators who are experienced in working at heights.

While Working at Heights is a great starting point, site-specific training is also required. After the in-class session, the employer must train workers on the specific hazards faced and types of equipment used on the job.

 

Program Content

This course consists of a combination of classroom and hands-on learning activities. Topics include:

  • Common fall hazards
  • Fall protection and types of equipment
  • Working with ladders, scaffolds, elevating work platforms, and suspended access equipment
  • Related laws and regulations
 

Personal Protective Equipment

Participants must wear appropriate clothing, as well as CSA-certified head, foot, and eye protection. We ask that you bring your own personal protective equipment (PPE) and that it is maintained and in good working order as per the manufacturer’s specifications and regulatory requirements. If you do not have the necessary PPE, you will not be able to complete the program and will be asked to reschedule when you have the proper clothing and equipment.

 

Learning Evaluation

To obtain a certificate of completion for this program, participants must be present for the full program and meet both of the following requirements:

1. Complete the written multiple-choice test and achieve a grade of 75%
2. Complete a hands-on demonstration of seven specific critical tasks and achieve a score of 100%.

IHSA will issue a certificate of completion only to those who successfully meet the above evaluation requirements. For participants with language, literacy, or accommodation needs, alternative evaluation methods to the written test may be used to verify that key concepts have been understood. Please discuss your needs with an IHSA customer service representative when registering and confirm your arrangements with the instructor at the beginning of class.

NOTE

In addition to successful completion of this training, employers must ensure that workers are adequately trained on the use of the specific equipment used at a specific workplace, including adequate oral and written instructions by a competent person.

 

Participant Course Evaluation

At the end of the training, participants will have the opportunity to evaluate and provide comments about the training they received.

Participants must bring a valid piece of photo ID to the training program to confirm their registration (e.g., Driver’s License, Permanent Resident Card, Passport, Student Card).
