Frequently Asked Questions

Who must take this training?

Working from heights is largely unavoidable in the construction industry, and can be very dangerous. Injuries and fatalities occur each year because construction workers were inadequately trained, didn’t follow safety procedures, or used improper equipment when working from elevated heights. For this reason, safety training for each person working on a construction site is critical.

How often is retraining or recertification required?

There is currently no retraining or recertification required by OHS specifically for Construction Fall Protection Safety.

What are the governing regulations?

This online Construction Fall Protection Safety training and certification course follows the regulations set forth in the Canada OHS Safety Standards, as well as Province and Territory specific regulations.
