Everyone from our company who attended the Working at Heights training had nothing but good things to say. Not only was the training great, but the follow-up has been superb as well!

News Bulletin from the MOL
IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED A LETTER RECENTLY FROM THE MINISTRY OF LABOUR, PLEASE READ BELOW:
From the Ministry of Labour, Health and Safety Training Administration and Certification Unit
Last Friday, we started receiving a high volume of calls from workers who completed Working at Heights training. Successful learners erroneously received letters indicating that we “could not process” their training because they did not complete the full Working at Heights training course previously.
We have checked our database and noticed that the completed training was valid, but the letter stock selected by our printing partner was incorrect. We are working with the printing partner to run a reprint to issue those WAH cards.
We are now in the freeze period to migrate over from the current database to the new Certification Management System as part of our Release 1 strategy. The freeze period does not affect the special print run noted above.
WHAT THIS MEANS:
- Do not panic if you have received a letter stating your training was invalid - if you successfully completed the full day WAH your training is valid
- The card you received from Safety Guys, or another approved provider, is valid proof of training for the entire three year term and recognized by MOL inspectors. The MOL has a copy of these card templates on file from every training provider in Ontario.
- If you have lost your card, contact us, or your training provider, for a replacement. A pdf copy can be emailed to you the same day as requested
- Please call us if you have any questions that we can help you with
Thank you for the Feedback!
