Mandatory Working at Heights training came into effect on April 1, 2015. The Chief Prevention Officer of the Ministry of Labour has outlined the requirements for this training and it is mandatory that your WAH training be refreshed every three years. (WAHR)
You must take WAHR three years from the date on your card.
For example, if you completed WAH on October 1, 2015, your refresher training is due by October 1, 2018.
If your card has expired, you are no longer permitted to work at heights.
I f you are caught working at heights with an expired card you are subject to MLTSD fines.
You must provide proof of WAH training when registering for WAHR.
A shout out to #Belleville! Here at Safety Guys, we are experiencing a demand for WAHR, especially in the Belleville area, where we have been averaging 3-5 WAHR classes per week as workers in the region prepare for spring.
We are running weekly public courses scheduled in Kingston and Belleville. Classes are filling up quickly, and we are adding more as instructors become available. Monitor our website for the newest listings or call our office for assistance.
You also have the option of booking a private training session for groups of 6 or more. Contact us to discuss arrangements and group discounts for 12 students.
