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 MOL-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.

A customer’s life was saved at the Eaton Centre on July 25th, at a national retail store. While walking down the aisle, they suddenly collapsed, and the store employees grabbed their Rescue 7 AED.

As the 911 operator instructed them to use the AED, their questions of “how?” were quickly answered as the AED used audio and visual prompts to guide them through the save. Upon EMS arrival, the employees were amazed at how easy it was to use the AED, and couldn’t believe they delivered a life-saving shock in just a few short minutes from the time of collapse.

The patient is doing well, and we’d like to commend the efforts of those involved in saving a life.
