STAC Responding to Ontario WAH Consultation


A new STAC project team will develop a submission to the Ontario government’s recently launched five-year review of the provincial Working at Heights training standards.

In a consultation notice posted in late January, the provincial government outlined a series of questions relating to the two separate working at heights training standards in Canada, which govern the provincial WAH training requirements for anyone who works at heights of 3 meters or more, as well as the training providers who can offer provincial WAH certifications.

Some of the topics discussed in the consultation include:

  • eLearning
  • Learning outcomes
  • Training duration
  • Trainer to instructor ratios
  • Refresher training requirements
  • Expectations of training providers
  • Trainer qualification criteria
  • Training provider reporting requirements

The STAC project team will work to develop a submission answering all of the consultation questions relevant to the communications tower industry and our training provider members by the March 11 deadline.
