Amending regulation 242/16 introduced changes to the Construction Projects regulation (O. Reg. 213/91) regarding the use of suspended work platform systems. These changes came into effect on January 1, 2017 and include training requirements for those who use, install, and inspect suspended work platform systems and boatswain’s (or bosun’s) chairs. This program teaches participants how to safely use a suspended work platform system or a powered boatswain’s (or bosun’s) chair. It is designed to meet the training requirements outlined in the updated (2016) Construction Projects regulation (O. Reg. 213/91, s. 138) and Window Cleaning regulation (Reg. 859, s. 45). Participants will learn about the requirements for roof plans and work plans, as well as the two separate systems of support when working from a suspended work platform: (1) the fall arrest system and (2) the suspended work platform system.
