Course Summary

Introduction

Due diligence encourages thinking not only about compliance with legislated standards but also taking steps to help ensure the health and safety of workers and others on the work site. In other words, employers and workers must do all that is reasonably practical to ensure the safety of everyone in a work area. It means working with care and showing that you care enough about your workplace and your colleagues to know your responsibilities and take all reasonable steps to carry them out safely.

VISTA Training

The Silver Series™ of web-based equipment operator training courses was created by VISTA Training of Wisconsin, USA. Each course in the Silver Series™ provides convenient on-demand online access to training on many types of heavy and light equipment. These courses are designed to help trainees become proficient and safe equipment operators, and make it easy for mines, contractors and fleet owners to schedule training when and where it's most convenient for them. They're also ideal for smaller entities that may only need to train a handful of new people per year (e.g. OSHA- or OHSA- or MSHA-related training). Many also use these courses as refresher training for their "experienced" operators. This helps create consistency among the entire team.

These self-study courses focus on how to productively and safely perform common tasks in a mine or around a jobsite. At the end of each course, an integrated test provides an accurate measure of how much knowledge has been retained. Trainees are also able to print a certificate of completion, customized with their name and test score as well as a report showing any incorrectly answered test questions.
