GTAA to require COR starting January 2017
"According to Garry Price, manager of capital restoration projects, construction is no exception, which is why all contractors will be required to be Certificate of Recognition (COR) certified by January 2017." Click here to read more.
The Certificate of Recognition (COR™) provides employers with an effective tool to assess their health and safety management system. COR™ is aimed at driving positive workplace behaviour and practices that lead to improved performance.
It is currently being used across Canada and is a pre-qualification requirement for many contractors working in and out of the province and on public- and private-sector projects.
By achieving COR™, employers are able to demonstrate to buyers of construction that their health and safety management system have been developed, implemented, and evaluated on an annual basis through comprehensive internal and external audits.
One of the steps to achieve COR™ is mandatory training. A representative from senior management and one designated full-time permanent employee must take prescribed training. This training is conducted to help the employer understand and commit to the program, and for the permanent full-time employee to become the designated Internal Auditor.
