Each year, nearly 700 falls occur on Quebec construction sites. This number calls for a reflection on the practices to adopt to ensure a safe work environment. With this theoretical training on working at height, you will learn how to prevent your workers from getting into accidents. This training educates your workers on the dangers they are exposed to in their work environment. The course emphasizes the importance of carrying out a job safety analysis (JSA) before starting work to highlight these dangers. The JSA also allows you to select the right equipment to perform the task.

To promote understanding, our experts will first explain the legal context governing working at height. This chapter demystifies obligations of employers and workers and the types of equipment required by the CNESST. Next, our experts will teach how to identify risks and analyze and to correct problematic situations. Indeed, the good working practices and methods presented here can significantly reduce workplace accidents.

After the training on working at height, course attendees will be able to choose the best prevention solution to carry out their tasks safely. Furthermore, they will know the different protection systems, such as equipment, attachment or support points, ladders, harnesses and other essentials required by federal and provincial laws.
