“Every employer and operator in the province has a legal and moral responsibility to ensure that people are competent in the tasks that they deliver,” said Huculak. “Some people see a competent person as someone that can move the most dirt the fastest but according to legislation competence is the ability to operate that machine in a safe manner.”

Equipment operator safety is the primary concern.

NTT decreases risk on the job by developing worker’s skills and familiarizing them with tasks through the use of simulators and professional training development.
