Workers who have completed an approved Working at Heights safety course and whose work is covered by the Regulations for Construction Projects are required to take a Working at Heights refresher course within three years of the date of completion of the training.  

For workers covered by all other regulations, including the Regulations for Mines and Mining Plants and Regulations for Industrial Establishments, training frequency is determined by the employer, but WSN recommends refresher training at least every three years.

This refresher course focuses on the practical aspects of using fall protection systems and other equipment used for working at heights. Among the topics covered in the course are:

  • warning methods, such as signage, bump lines and barriers, used to identify fall hazards to workers to prevent falls from heights
  • different types of work positioning systems that may be available to safely perform a variety of tasks at height, including scaffolds and powered elevating work platforms
  • different types of personal fall protection systems, including their limitations, appropriate uses, components, and set-up
  • hands-on experience setting up, wearing and using personal fall protection equipment.

Intended Audience: 

This training is intended for workers, supervisors, joint health and safety committee members, health and safety representatives or anyone else who works at heights, works with or supervises people who work at heights.
