Safety

We want our graduates to be able to pursue their entire career in Yukon. The comprehensive and multi-faceted training delivered through CNIM allows students to successfully complete nationally and internationally recognized programs, apprenticeships, and entry-level training.

Yukon College prides itself for producing graduates who are trained and drilled in proper, nationally-recognized safety procedures appropriate to their field of study.  All students must show knowledge of, and proficiency in, Yukon Occupational Health and Safety Standards, as part of their required mine-related programming.

Students learn how to identify common hazards in the workplace, properly use protective equipment, assess issues related to air and hazardous materials safety, as well obtain standard Red Cross First Aid Certification.
