But I dont work for the MOL, so who TF knows.

These aren't small jobs, these are werehouses and high rise buildings.

FYI

They made that rule up. If your expired, you can not work at heights. I have many members who are expired right now and many contractors asking me if they can work. I have spoken with the MOL and and they confirmed that a worker can not work at heights without a valid card.

Keep in mind this was the info I received from the MOL before this Covid situation.

Right now like I said the MOL has bigger issues and the minister is supposed to do something. I assume the expiration of 3 years will be lengthened or postponed.

I am also surprised that you can actually take the course because everyone who does the training is shut down. Well, obviously not everyone.

I don't honestly know. It could be a mix of things like UV light and cpo (cold pressed oil). I know that the oil will dissolve the soles on cheap oil resistant boots as you leave little foot prints if there is a spill.

You would think under the circumstances someone would grow some balls and make a command decision about the one week out certification and grandfather those possessing them so the work can be accomplished. It is a certification of training. Just because your card is expired doesn't mean you automatically took a stupid pill.

I said the same thing. I've worked construction my whole life, including BEFORE this whole working at heights thing was introduced. Half of the course isn't even useful to us... like anything above 10' you need to be tied off, and ladders aren't meant to be worked off of... sure, let me bring in scaffolding to change your light bulb. The course is more suited to someone like a roofer who uses ladders all day, and needs to be tied off pretty much all the time.

It was based on what a statement of wanting you guys to grow some balls and stand up.


I've heard it said people have a New York attitude, a Jersey attitude, a Philly attitude, a ghetto attitude, etc when referring to someone being loud an outspoken.............I'm yet to hear any reference to anything even remotely Canadian if terms of someone being brash, rude, or aggressive.

Loud, out spoken , aggressive. Really proud adjectives to be known for
I sorta like the diplomatic way of getting stuff done, rather than the rough shod manner of Americans.
Americans enjoy being the bully type (except Alaskans, they are great people )
And Montanans, oh yeah, North Dakotans and Minnesotans.

Hey< all those states border Canada. Maybe they are more like us than the rest of the 46

Kind of funny because I really only see Canadian s on this site saying bully comments like "Must be an American because...." on a regular basis. It goes both ways here, just more to one side. Seems like the Canadians always have to make a comment that someone is an American because of their point of view on something. Many passive aggressive comments towards Americans.

Just want it to be clear though. A lot of the people here who's opinions I respect greatly are Canadian. Just tired of the bashing on Americans while calling us rude in the same sentence they put down a whole country. Doesn't make sense to me.

Interesting. Well, as of currently, I'm still taking my renewal course unless they cancel.
