As of April 1st, 2015 the new standards for heights training came into effect and are being enforced by the Ontario Ministry of Labour.   If your workers face fall hazards, you are required by law to provide them with appropriate training. The Occupational Health and Safety Act states “an employer shall ensure that a worker who may use a fall protection system is adequately trained in its use”.
