4S Consulting Offers Working At Heights (WAH) Training Approved By The Chief Prevention Office of the Ministry of Labour (MOL)
Occupational Health and Safety Act defines a workplace as any land, premises, location, or thing at, upon, or near which a worker works. In simple words, any place where a WORKER works is his or her WORKPLACE. Therefore, if you are working at a CONSTRUCTION SITE, it will obviously be considered your WORKPLACE by the OHSA going by the above definition.
Moreover, if you work at heights of 3 meters (10ft) or more, you need to comply with the Working At Heights training requirement from a CPO-approved provider before OCT 01, 2017.
Construction workers who are required to wear fall protection equipment were mandated to also complete an CPO-approved WAH training program. The previous Fall Protection training would be “grandfathered”. Going forward, only WAH training from a CPO-approved provider would be acceptable. This gave employers a 2-year transitional period to ensure all their construction employees got the WAH training done.
