Section 7.1 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) provides the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) the authority to establish standards for training programs required under the OHSA and its regulations, and to approve training programs which meet those standards.

Section 7.2 of the OHSA provides the CPO with the authority to establish standards which must be met in order for a training provider to be approved to deliver one or more approved training programs.

The Working at Heights Training Program Standard outlines the requirements that must be met by training programs seeking approval by the CPO. It should be read in conjunction with the Working at Heights Training Provider Standard, which sets out the requirements that a provider must meet to be considered for approval by the CPO. Working at heights training programs which contain eLearning components must also meet the CPO’s eLearning Instructional Design Guidelines.

In order to be approved by the CPO to deliver an approved working at heights training program, training providers must be able to demonstrate they meet both the Working at Heights Program and Provider standards.
