New “Working at Heights” Standard

The Ontario Ministry of Labour now has a new training standard for workers who work at heights. This new standard requires construction workers and employers to follow specific guidelines when workers are at risk of falling while working at heights.

The workers must go through a one day training program to ensure that they know the requirements of the standard.
