Northern Safety Network Yukon Evaluation Report

Northern Safety Network Yukon (NSNY) has been offering job-specific training and occupational health and safety accreditation programs since 2003. The courses and programs available through NSNY enable employers to better understand their responsibilities under the Occupational Health and Safety Act and its regulations. Courses are offered in its Whitehorse training centre and in Yukon communities.

NSNY is partially funded by the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board, with the goal of promoting a commitment to occupational health and safety among Yukon workers and employers.

NSNY offers the Certificate of Recognition (COR), Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR), and Owner Operator Certificate of Proficiency (OCOP) programs. These national programs are designed to help employers develop and maintain company-wide safety programs, implement standardized training, and monitor safety through annual audits.

In 2015 the YWCHSB Board of Directors approved an evaluation of NSNY. A Request for Proposals was publicly tendered and subsequently awarded to the successful bidder, Ference & Company Consulting Ltd. of Vancouver, BC.

A final report of the evaluation was delivered to the Board of Directors in February 2017. The Board of Directors reviewed the report and accepted it. YWCHSB management has been directed to review the report with NSNY to discuss next steps and opportunities for improvement.

The report has been released publicly and is available for download:
