Ontario Working from Heights Legislation

February 23, 2015 at 9:30 AM

In just a few short weeks, Ontario’s new ‘Working from Heights” legislation comes into effect.  Starting April 1, 2015 employers in Ontario who have employees who need to be protected from a fall, at any height, must ensure that those employees meet specific training requirements by an approved training provider.

Hot Zone Training Consultants has been working very closely with the Ministry of Labour and will hopefully soon be one of the first CPO (Chief Prevention Officer) approved training providers in Ontario.

We want to make it very clear, that if your workers have completed training before April 1, 2015 that meets the requirements of Regulation 213/91 section 26.2 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, then that worker has 2 years before they are required to complete an approved working from heights training program.

It is our hope that you don’t receive any false information about the new Working from Heights standards for Regulation 213/91. There are currently NO training facilities that are certified by the Chief Prevention Office of the Ministry of Labour on the new standard. The Ministry of Labour estimates that training programs and providers, including Hot Zone Training Consultants Inc., will be approved before April 1, 2015.

Hot Zone will continue to be your current safety training provider for working at heights within the current legislative requirements. As soon as Hot Zone has been approved, we will issue a press release and as always will work with your company to schedule any training dates for any employees that do not meet the new Regulation 213/91 requirement after April 1. We look forward to working with you to keep your employees safe.

For more information about the new Working from Heights Regulation 213/91 legislation, you can view an updated notice from the Ministry of Labour here: http://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/hs/sawo/pubs/fs_wahconstruction.php

There are also free resources available from the Ministry of Labour which are available here:
