Regulated working at heights training works and needed: studies

Special Report
Two recently released Ontario studies demonstrate why mandatory, standardized working at heights training is so critical to worker well-being.
One study undertaken by the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) conducted an evaluation of the impact the province's working at heights training standard had on workers and their work sites. A second and earlier probe prepared by the Ministry of Labour (MOL) for the Chief Prevention Officer undertook root cause analysis of worker deaths from falls from heights.

Significant results from WAH training standard

The IWH evaluation consisted of surveys with working at heights training participants, training providers and employers in construction. Interviews with MOL inspectors, an examination of MOL administrative records and lost-time workers' compensation claims were also taken into account.
