Special thanks and acknowledgement to the members of the High Hazard Training Working Group for establishing the framework used in the development of the Working at Heights Training Provider Standard:
This Working at Heights Training Provider Standard outlines the requirements for training providers seeking the approval of the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) to deliver an approved working at heights training program.
This training program standard will be reviewed at least every five years.
CPO approval is granted to those training providers that meet the Working at Heights Training Provider Standard after a successful assessment and review with respect to the delivery of an approved working at heights training program. While reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the criteria of the Working at Heights Training Provider Standard are maintained by training providers, responsibility resides with employers, to ensure compliance with training requirements under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. In determining what rights or obligations a party may have under the legislation, reference should always be made to the official version of the Act and the regulations.
