FALL PROTECTION ONLINE TRAINING
Any person working at elevations is required by provincial law to be trained in fall protection safety.
Worksite Safety’s universal Fall Protection Certification program has been developed in accordance with federal and provincial legislations as safety training for workplaces across Canada (with the exception of Newfoundland).
By completing this online course and receiving on-site training, an employee is exercising his or her own due diligence in compliance with Occupational Health and Safety Regulations.
This course is not intended as a replacement for high-angle rescue, hands-on training, or more advanced training (such as the Ontario Ministry of Labour-regulated Working at Heights). If you require such training, please call 1-866-756-5552 for details about in-class training.
