Every year in Ontario people fall while performing work at heights. Fortunately, there are preventative measures that can be taken to protect workers who are at risk. Ropes and harnesses are required by law for anyone working over 10 feet high.
Inspectors are few and far between so the onus is on the companies to conduct themselves safely.
Toronto Homeowners can do their part by hiring companies that work safely. Don’t be afraid to tell the contractor you are hiring that you expect safety on your property.
Knowing what the law is and how it can keep workers safe at heights really makes it hard to turn a blind eye. Some high risk activities are roofing, eavestroughing, painting, and window and eavestrough cleaning.
Reduce your liability and hire smart. You may save a life!
