The Working at Heights Training and Working at Heights Refresher Courses are both approved by the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) of Ontario. These courses are taught by our certified trainers and we offer short notice training or weekend sessions if required. All employers who have employees that work at height must have their workers successfully complete the full CPO approved Working at Heights Training program. The full course is valid for a period of 3 years from date of successful completion. To avoid this certification from expiring the Working at Heights Refresher Course will need to be completed.

Employers must ensure that certain workers complete the courses that have been approved by the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) and delivered by an approved training provider such as Safety First Training before they can work at heights.
The training requirement is for workers on construction projects who use any of the following methods of fall protection: travel restraint systems, fall restricting systems, fall arrest systems, safety nets and work belts or safety belts.
