After receiving requests from worker representatives in the construction sector, and in dialogue with employers and health and safety organizations, O,Reg. 297/13 has been amended to extend the time for workers to receive the training.

The deadline for WORKING AT HEIGHTS is being extended to October 1, 2017, lengthening the transition period by six months in specific circumstances.

The worker(s) in question must have completed fall protection training that met the requirements of section 26.2(1) of O. Reg. 213/91 (Construction Projects) before April 1, 2015, and the worker must be enrolled in a WAH training program that will be completed before October 1, 2017. The employer must have written proof of enrollment, which must be made available to an inspector upon request.

The proof of enrollment must include the name of the worker, the name of the approved training provider, the date on which the approved training is scheduled to be complete, and the name of the approved training program. Your clients may request you provide them with this proof of enrollment with these four required items.
