Part 9 Fall Protection

Section 141 Instruction of workers

Workers must be trained in the safe use of fall protection equipment and the procedures they must follow to ensure their personal safety while using this equipment. This training must include the procedures to assemble, maintain, inspect, use and disassemble the fall protection system or systems in use (see section 15 of the OHS Regulation). Workers expected to rescue a worker who has fallen and is suspended by a fall arrest system must be trained in rescue procedures.
