Weekly Review: August 21st-27th

The Toronto Football Club, the Ontario Soccer Association, the Toronto Soccer Referees and Rescue 7 have teamed up for the 2nd Annual
End of Season Soccer Match where partial funds of discounted tickets go towards deploying AEDs into our communities.

A portion of every ticket sold will go to putting defibrillators into soccer associations around Ontario. The more tickets sold, the more AEDs will be deployed so if you can, come on out at cheer on the 1st place team! Invite friends, family and colleagues to this event in support of a wonderful cause.

This is one of our last WAH courses before the October 1st renewal deadline.

The new Working at Heights Training Program Standard became mandatory for all Ontario construction projects regulated by the Regulations for Construction Projects. The new standard legislates specific requirements for specialized Working at Heights training, as well as for training providers. The October 1st extension though comes with strict conditions.

Here’s what you need to know about the revised compliance deadline:
• Again, it only applies to workers who, prior to April 1, 2015, completed adequate fall protection training (subsection 26.2(1) of the O.Reg 213/91)
• Workers must be enrolled in an CPO-approved Working at Heights training program to be completed before October 1, 2017
• Employers must have written proof of enrollment to include name of worker, name of approved training program and provider, and date training is to be completed. Proof of enrollment must be made available to a MOL inspector upon request.
