WAH Training Validity Period
Attention all Members of the PLMSC and the PLMHSC
At the January 2021 meetings of both Section 21 committees, a question about the validity period of WAH training was asked of the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development – Prevention Office representative Justin Zelasko.
Please see a copy of the question and supplied answer from the MLTSD – Prevention Office below:
· It states that previously training individuals between Feb 28 and Aug 31 2017 has an extended 1-year expiry into 2021. So, what about those who expired past August 31, 2017, for example, Sept 1, 2017 – Jan 12, 2018. Do they also have a 1-year extension?
Working at Heights validity:
The 1-year extension for validity only applies to those workers who completed WAH between Feb 28, 2017, and Aug 31, 2017 (i.e., extensions for validity for these workers will expire between Feb 28. 2021 and August 31, 2021). Once extensions to validity expire in the coming months, the regular WAH training validity and refresher training requirements will apply.
For all other workers, the regular WAH training validity and refresher training requirements apply.
