Working at Heights Training

CLAC is an approved provider of Working at Heights Training (in-class and blended) and Refresher Training.

NOTICE: Due to COVID-19, all full day WAH training is cancelled until further notice. We are offering the full program as a Blended course and the Refresher program under certain circumstances. Please refer to the Blended or Refresher pages for specific details about availability.

The Ministry of Labour, Training and Skill Development has mandated that all CPO-approved WAH training certificates with an expiry between February 28, 2020 and August 31, 2020 have been extended for one calendar year. This allows the affected workers to continue to work and employers to engage these workers on construction projects.

CLAC’s Working at Heights (WAH) program provides the training you need to meet the legislative requirements in Ontario. Our program is approved by the Chief Prevention Officer and is open to CLAC members and the general public.

Who needs this training?

If you work on construction projects in Ontario and use travel restraint systems, fall restricting systems, fall arrest systems, safety nets, and work belts or safety belts as methods of fall protection, you need to complete a working at heights training program that has been approved by the Ministry of Labour’s chief prevention officer before you can work at heights. The Working at Heights (WAH) training requirements are set out in O. Reg. 297/13 and came into force on April 1, 2015.
