COR & SAFE Auditing
The Certificate of Recognition (COR) program encourages employers to create a health and safety management system that goes beyond current legal requirements. The voluntary program recognizes employers that are proactive about improving workplace safety, and dedicated to continual improvement. Currently they are 8 certifying partners in British Columbia that administer the COR program. To be eligible for COR, the employer must demonstrate that it has implemented an effective health and safety management system by conducting and passing an audit using an approved audit protocol. An external auditor approved by a certifying partner conducts the audit using an approved audit protocol.
Can Do Safety’s health and safety consultants are qualified and certified to perform external audits for BC Forest Safety Council (BCFSC) and BC Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA) certifying partners. Can Do Safety Ltd. safety consultants will be able to conduct Energy Safety Canada external audits in the beginning of 2021.
BC Construction Safety Alliance External Audits
Companies in the construction sector, as well as classification unit’s 704008 and 712033, are automatically eligible to participate in BCCSA’s COR program.
BC Forest Safety Council
Companies in BC forest or forest product sectors are eligible to become SAFE certified. Once a company becomes SAFE certified, the BCFSC will automatically determine if your company meets WorkSafeBC’s COR requirements and if your company is eligible to receive the COR incentive payment.
Upon demonstrating that the company has implemented an effective health and safety management system, an employer may be awarded a certificate upon successful completion of an approved audit instrument.
