The Yukon Mine Training Association (YMTA) and the Yukon Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) have developed a generic certification program for first line supervisors in the mining and resource-related industries. This e-course is part of the process towards obtaining the Permanent First Line Supervisors Certificate, as required by the Occupational Health and Safety Act in the Yukon.
The ultimate goal of this training is to achieve 'Safeproduction'. Safeproduction is achieved through the work of competent people – including workers and all levels of supervisors/management. Competent people know and comply with the applicable legislation, know and consistently apply appropriate company operating procedures, and consistently demonstrate a level of performance which satisfies the company standards.
Core Competencies for First Line Supervisors has 6 modules. You must achieve 100% on all 6 self-assessments to retrieve your Certificate of Completion. A copy of this certificate must be provided to YMTA before you take the final examination.
