MOL Working at Heights Consultation Sessions
The Ministry of Labour is consulting on the implementation of the Working at Heights Training Standards. The Working at Heights Training Program Standard was released on December 19, 2013. The goal is high quality and consistent working at heights training.
Implementation of the Working at Heights Training Standards will promote high quality and consistent delivery of working at heights training and contribute to the safety of workers who work at heights.
The Ministry of Labour is consulting on two aspects of implementation:
· A new draft Working at Heights Training Provider Standard that would set out requirements for training providers who will seek to be approved by the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) to deliver approved working at heights training; and,
· A regulatory proposal to require certain workers to complete an approved working at heights training program, delivered by an approved training provider.
Start Date: March 10, 2014
