Maureen Van Overliw is the lead facilitator of this training and the founder of Momentum Training Services, established in Yellowknife in 2012.  Momentum Training Services boasts a large portfolio of leadership development training, including the WSCC-approved Supervisor Safety Training. More information about Momentum can be found on their website

Since the NWT Health and Safety Regulations were revised in 2015, Momentum Training Services (MTS) has delivered the WSCC-approved Supervisor Safety training to countless government agencies, private industries, and non-profit employers across the NWT and Nunavut.

What sets MTS apart from our competitors is our background in adult education. Our course is built upon adult learning theory and incorporates best-practice teaching methods. We do not use PowerPoint slides with our training, which is based on active learning concepts beyond basic memorization. Our training methods touch on the highest levels of Bloom’s taxonomy by encouraging participants to use critical thinking skills through course personalization and applicability to our audiences using material that is adaptable and effective. Whether we train trades workers or Deputy Ministers, our material stays relevant to each learner.

This training course, designed and developed for employees working in supervisory positions, includes 6 modules that define the Northwest Territories regulatory and specific supervisor responsibilities; best practices in the identification and control of hazards; and practical safety exercises.

This 2-day course will assist supervisors in maintaining the safety of employees and contractors. Supervisors will examine their roles and responsibilities as leaders in workplace safety to ensure they, and their employees, meet or exceed the NWT Safety Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations and the WSCC safety expectations.
