IWH Speaker Series
Lynda Robson, Institute for Work & Health
In 2014, Ontario’s Ministry of Labour introduced regulations defining a working-at-heights (WAH) training program standard and established a program for accrediting training providers in the province. In this presentation, Dr. Lynda Robson shares findings from a study that examined the reach and effectiveness of the training standard. She highlights the effects of the program for small employers and high-risk construction businesses.
