People working at heights of more than 3 meters (10 feet) risk serious injuries in case of a slip, which is why Fall Protection training is mandatory to ensure their safety.

Statistics indicate that, regardless of the height in question, working at any distance upwards 6 feet from the ground poses great danger for the worker. Fall Protection training is designed to help employees understand the serious risk of injury when working at heights and it covers all aspects of using fall protection equipment, such as harnesses or ladders, in order to minimize or completely avoid accidents from heights.
The Fall Protection certification is a legal requirement for workers who must conduct their activities at heights that exceed 10 feet. Many job candidates take it upon themselves to complete the certification before an interview, as a way to increase their odds of getting hired. Meanwhile, current employees must regularly undergo this training program to maintain their safety in the workplace.
The following industries are more likely to require Fall Protection certification from employees:
- Energy & Electricity.
- Oil & Gas.
Ontario employees should note that any construction-related work requires the regional “Working at Heights” (WAH) certification instead. Newfoundland and Labrador employees must undergo a minimum 2-day WorkplaceNL-approved “hands-on” training course.
Across the jurisdiction of Canada, it falls upon the employer to ensure a safe work environment for their employees. As such, the former is responsible for the implementation of any safety training that might be required.
At the same time, it is the worker’s obligation to complete the courses and apply what they have learned throughout their work experience. Many job candidates will often complete Fall Protection before their interview, as a way to enhance their resume and hiring prospects.
As part of the Fall Protection training program, employees will first be acquainted with frequent fall hazards that may occur when working at heights. They will then learn how the risk of injury can be eliminated through appropriate use of personal protective equipment and fall protection systems. Lastly, students are made aware of contingency plans surrounding any fall-related injury.
Industry standards recommend that employees who work at heights should undergo Fall Protection training once per year. The regular completion of the course ensures that legal safety standards are abided, while also decreasing the risk of accidents taking place.
Businesses and workers who acquire Fall Protection also purchase Personal Protective Equipment, Electrical Safety and Awareness, Aerial Lifts, and Lockout/Tagout.
