MWAR Helmet Use Policy
MOUNT WASHINGTON ALPINE RESORT WORKER HELMET POLICY
In conjunction with required Worksafe regulations and CWSAA best practices, ski and snowboard helmets are now mandatory for all workers who are travelling on snow during the course of their employment at Mount Washington.
Any worker who is skiing, blading, snowboarding, from or to any lift or conveyor on the mountain and on any terrain accessed by a lift or conveyor and defined as “Alpine” will be required to wear an approved helmet.
Helmets will be mandatory once the worker has started their shift until they have completed their shift.
Workers are required to supply their own helmet as part of their own personal equipment, as they would for skis, boards and boots.
Failure to wear a helmet while riding or skiing during work time will lead to disciplinary action, which could include termination, and may lead to workers not being covered by Worksafe in the event of an injury where they were not wearing their helmet.
Volunteers participating on Alpine terrain will be asked to follow this policy.
