Working @ Heights Training

Course Access: Lifetime
Course Overview

Our Working at Heights Safety Protection Awareness Program is an approved CPO course and provides our participants with the knowledge and understanding of working at heights basics, system components and protection systems according to the Ministry of Labour Regulations and Standards. Approximately 20% of all lost time injuries can be contributed to falls in the workplace. Most injuries are same level, others are lower level. Ladders contribute to the more serious injuries or death. In fact, only motor vehicles contribute to a higher risk of workplace fatalities. You may have never personally experienced a fall to a lower level but that doesn’t mean that hazards don’t exist; less frequent hazards mean hazard is hidden and makes it more dangerous. It’s imperative that workers understand the hazards involved when working at heights and consistently follow the rules and safety work procedures.
