Fall Protection Training & Certification in Kitchener, ON
Fall protection training & certification saves money, saves lives
In Canada, more than 40,000 workers suffer fall injuries on the job every single year, and when heavy-duty equipment and aerial lifts are involved, those injuries can be catastrophic.
For employers, every fall represents a significant chunk of lost work productivity, estimated around 11 days and $1600 of losses per minor injury, and as much as $59,000 per major injury, according to one study by the Injury Prevention journal (Peterson et al., 2021).
For employees, fall injuries cause serious pain, physical and financial suffering, and in some cases, even claim lives.
Fortunately, fall injuries can be prevented with proper fall protection training and certification, and CNLiftSafety is here to help.
Do I need fall protection training and certification in Kitchener, ON?
According to the Government of Ontario and OHSA Regulation 213/91: Construction Projects, all employees need fall protection training and certification if they work on sites involving the use of:
- Travel restraint systems
- Fall restricting systems
- Fall arrest systems
- Safety nets
- Work belts
- Safety belts
Broadly speaking, this means all aerial work platform operators will need some form of fall protection training and certification.
