WORKING AT HEIGHTS DEADLINE REMINDER

While the deadline for completion of the NEW Working At Heights (WAH) standard was extended in April of this year, companies, supervisors and workers are reminded that the October 1, 2017 deadline is fast approaching.

 

Don't wait until it is too late to get your WAH certification training done.  More and more General Contractors are requiring ALL workers on-site to have it even if they may not be working at heights.  It is quickly becoming another mandatory requirement to come on-site.

 

REMEMBER-The MOL extended deadline requires that workers have Proof of Registration in an MOL-approved WAH course.  You cannot simply wait until October to book your course.

 

Don't wait until it's too late.  Be proactive.  Think ahead.  Be safe.
