Working from Heights – Canada


Falls from even as little as one metre can cause serious injury, or even death, and are one of the leading causes of injury and death in the workplace. In Canada, provinces and territories set their own regulations, but this course is based on Ontario's standards as well as best practices. Fall protection is generally grouped into two categories: passive or active fall protection. Passive fall protection methods include guardrails and netting. If it is not enough, active fall protection is required. This course will provide an overview of active fall protection systems. It is primarily for employees who work at heights in Canada.
