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 Refresher

Program Description

This program provides workers who have already completed an CPO-approved working at heights course with a refresher course in the basics of implementing fall protection systems at their workplaces. Participants receive up-to-date information on the legislative requirements of fall protection, including how to recognize, assess, and control fall hazards. They will also have opportunities to practice identifying deficiencies while inspecting fall protection equipment.

 
NOTICE

You must provide the Learner ID number found on your CPO-issued WAH proof of completion at the time of registration. Replacement cards can be requested by calling the Ministry of Labour Contact Centre at 1-877-202-0008.

  • The Fall Protection Hierarchy

PREREQUISITES

IHSA's Working at Heights – Fundamentals of Fall Prevention course or an equivalent working at heights course that was approved by the CPO after April 1, 2015.

 

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 the following requirements:
1. Complete the written multiple-choice test and achieve a grade of 75%.
2. Complete the practical demonstrations.

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.

 
NOTICE

In addition to successfully completing this training course, employers must ensure that workers receive adequate training on the specific equipment used at their workplace and receive 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.

 

Photo Identification

Participants must bring a valid piece of photo ID to the training program to confirm their registration (e.g., Driver’s Licence, Permanent Resident Card, Passport, or Student Card) and their MOL-issued Working at Heights proof of completion card.
