Certificate of Recognition in Safety
What is COR/SECOR?
The Certificate of Recognition (COR) process for companies with 10 or more employees, requires six days of training and can be completed in approximately a month’s time if taken in Edmonton or Calgary. For outlying regions, the above courses are offered twice annually.
The Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR) Process, for companies with no more than 10 employees, requires courses as well as the creation of a Health and Safety Program.
COR is an essential component of WCB's Partners in Injury (PIR) program. Certificates for the Alberta construction industry are issued by the Alberta Construction Safety Association and are co-signed by Alberta Employment and Immigration.
The COR Advantage
Maintenance of quality health and safety programs will better enable you to reduce workplace injuries, keep your employees safe, improve morale and practice due diligence.
Achieving and maintaining a valid COR is required for earning refunds from the WCB if registered in the WCB Partners in Injury Reduction (PIR) program.
You will receive recognition in the industry from other employers, contractors and trades people for your health and safety standards.
COR is fast becoming an expectation in the industry.
COR & SECOR Certifications Steps
