Working at Heights

Refresher Training!

Wednesday July 8th, 2020

The Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development is giving workers in the construction sector an extra year to renew their Working at Heights training, but that doesn't mean you have to wait.

Working at heights and refresher training dates are happening on demand at Construction Workplace Safety Training weekly! Check the calendar to see the next session or call 1-877-738-9178 for more information!

About 120,000 workers were due to have their Working at Heights training expire over the next few months. Because of the pandemic though, certification was not possible at the time. But now, as we continue to follow COVID-19 safety measures and in office policies, our training is available to the public and is accepting bookings now, at your site or ours!

For those on the fence about it, the extension will apply to workers who successfully completed their training between February 28 and August 31, 2017. The 3 year validity period for Working at Heights training would have ended this year. It will now end in 2021.

Safety Training is Back!

Wednesday June 17th, 2020

The construction industry has remained essential throughout this pandemic, but some services were deemed non-essential at one point, including ours.

If you've met our authentic and inspirational team before, you know - we care A LOT about the construction community.

Even though our training center doors were closed, our leading ladies Lee and Nikki have been available virtually and by phone to answer your questions and still offer guidance.

We want to thank you and everyone for helping to keep the front line workers less overwhelmed by staying safe. We know it was very disrupting to have your training cancelled because of COVID, and if we haven't reached out to you yet to reschedule, please contact us here.

Yes, we are slowly accepting bookings once again at our training headquarters and for job site locations. We are so happy to see your faces again!

But that's not entirely all the good news:

Our team has combined their creativity, education, knowledge, and passion for this industry to offer our clients a new online and in-person blended learning option for both individuals and businesses.

Very shortly, we will make this option available and help get you certified while keeping peace of mind. In the mean time, check our web calendar for upcoming classes, and do not hesitate to call!

Our Commitment To Your Safety During COVID-19:

We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation here in Ontario.


As such, we have adapted our facility and programs to adhere to the recommendations from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, the Government of Canada, and our regulating bodies.

When you visit our training center, you can feel safe knowing that our reduced class sizes, sanitizing routines, screening and protective equipment wearing protocols are there to protect you.

There is adequate space to maintain distance from one another, but you will still be asked to:

  • Be aware of social distancing

  • Bring your own harness and safety equipment if required

  • Wear a mask

  • Use hand sanitizer

  • Reschedule if unwell


Both masks and hand sanitizer are available on site!
