Safe Nations Certification
The Safe Nations Certification is scheduled to begin in 2016 and will be available to any industry or organization operating on First Nations lands or in cooperation with First Nations Enterprises or Corporations.
Through a cooperative relationship, organizations can work towards “Safe Nations” certification by:
- successfully undergoing a verification assessment of their Safety Management System by First Nations Safety Council Advisors
- attending various training programs to align their operations and workforce with specific requirements to the Safe Nations protocols
- taking part in periodic site visits and safety assessments by Council staff to assist the organization in aligning safety initiatives with First Nations traditions and values supporting continuous improvement and cooperative step-change
- provide resources for First Nations workers in training, job experience, internships and job placements while working cooperatively with The Fist Nations Safety Council to achieve incident and injury free operations
