  • ensure the training provider delivering the training program was approved by the CPO as having met the Working at Heights Training Provider Standard applicable at the time of training;
  • ensure the worker’s training is valid and has not expired;
  • maintain a training record for the worker that includes the worker’s name, the approved training provider’s name, the date the training was completed and the name of the approved training program;
  • and make the training record available to a Ministry of Labour inspector on request.
