Mining – An Industry That Could Be Fatal

Although we have seen a change for the better in recent years, mining remains one of the most dangerous industries in Canada. According to Workplace Safety North, a non-profit health & safety association in Ontario, 906 injuries and 12 work-related fatalities were reported throughout the province in 2018 alone.

During the same year, only 22,437 people were employed in the mining sector in Ontario, which means that more than 4% of the total number of employees experienced injuries at work. The number is only comparable with statistics from the Logging & Forestry industry, which, in 2018, was considered the most dangerous sector to work in.

The causes for most work-related injuries or illnesses in Mining were excessive physical effort (44%), improper use of equipment (24%), contact with electricity or hazardous substances (21%), as well as falls (11%). The packages described below include safety courses that are designed to help you prevent precisely these types of accidents while at work. The courses are selected according to the requirements of the most common jobs in Mining.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you courses compliant with OHS & Worker Compensation Boards?

All our courses are compliant with OHS and the CSA Standards which the Worker Compensation Boards follow. However, there are some courses which also require the hands-on practice and evaluation, on top of the theoretical training and evaluation which is offered by the online training.

For these courses, we have included, in our training modules and in their respective resources section, an operator evaluation checklist which you can use to assist you with this hands-on practice and evaluation. This part of the training is done offline and has to be workplace specific and as such, it is not something that we are able to offer.

What happens after I purchase the course?

Once you finish with your checkout process, you will immediately be credited with the courses that you have purchased. You can then use the “Invite New Users” function or the “Group Training” option, depending on your preferred method of training, to assign the courses to your workers.

Can I use my email / same email to invite my workers to course?

No. Each email used in the invitational process has to be unique for each person taking the course.

If your workers do not have an email address, you can use the invitation function for workers without an email address, by clicking “Yes” in the checkbox near the question “DO YOU HAVE WORKERS WITHOUT EMAIL ADDRESS?”. This will open a different invitation process that does not use email addresses for.

Can everyone do the training from the same computer?

Yes. Please note that you do, however, have to log out after each session so the next worker can login using his personal details.

To log out from an account, you will have to click “My Account” from the top right corner of the website and once you are in your user control panel, click the “Log out” button.

How long do you have to complete a course?

Workers invited to take a course will have up to one year to complete their training so this should offer them plenty of time to do it.

Can you pause & resume a course?

Yes. When you pause a course, a bookmark will be left to that slide / module. You can later resume from there or chose to start from the beginning of the module.

Can you retake the testing section if you fail?

If your workers are invited in an individual training system (they do the training from their own account), they will have unlimited exam attempts.

If your workers are participating in a group training, they will have one re-attempt per module. This is to prevent the entire group from waiting for certain individuals that are not paying attention to the training session.

Do you offer offline training as well?

Not at this moment. All our courses are online.
