Scaffolding and Ladder

Prerequisites: None

Note: Participants must wear appropriate footwear. These are two separate courses which focus safe practices when using scaffolds or Ladders as work platforms or accesses.

For this course we can conduct the training at your facility or at our own training facility, whichever will suit your needs best. There are some great benefits to both approaches. By completing your training on-site we can save your staff travel time, by completing your training at our facility you can benefit from our spacious training room, our state of the art hands on training space and full use of our break room.

Many workers use EWPs (Elevating Work Platforms) on their job site to access project work at heights.  The Construction Projects Regulation requires that “An elevating work platform shall not be moved unless all workers on it are protected from ejection by being attached to an adequate anchorage point on the elevating work platform by a method of fall protection”

[O. Reg. 213/91 s. 148 (1) (d)]

The Construction Projects regulation requires all workers who use/wear fall protection to have received Working at Heights training from a training facility which is approved by the Ontario Chief Prevention Officer as an Approved Training Provider. As such, all operators AND passengers on elevating work platforms used on project sites must have Working at Heights training.
