“Falls are the number one cause of critical injuries and fatalities of workers at construction projects in Ontario.”
Ontario is improving safety for construction workers by making new training for those who work at heights mandatory as of April 1, 2015. The new Working at Heights Training Program Standard will ensure everyone using fall protection systems is consistently trained and better protected on the job. This standard applies to all construction projects in Ontario regulated by the Regulations for Construction Projects.
