Working at Heights (WAH)

STS Group’s CPO approved Working at Heights training program delivers mandatory baseline training which is mandatory for all workers who work on construction sites and are exposed to risks of fall.

The employer or supervisor is required to provide specific training on the types of equipment used on site. STS Group also offers fall protection training specific to equipment and according to workers’ needs.

STS Group’s approved training program provides workers with the required knowledge for working at heights safely. Students will obtain hands-on use in connecting different types of fall protection equipment and inspecting the components of selected fall protection equipment.

This course also addresses safe practices and procedures as specified in Construction Regulation by the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
