According to the Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation (O. Reg. 297/13) employers in Ontario must ensure that all workers on construction projects have successfully completed a Ministry-approved working at heights training program (opens in new window).
Workers who have not actually completed the training must be enrolled in a training course. The employer must have written proof of enrolment.
This proof of enrolment must be made available to an inspector upon request. The proof of enrolment must include:
1. The name of the worker
2. The name of the approved training provider
3. The date on which the approved training is scheduled to be completed
4. The name of the approved training program
