Our turnkey Health and Safety Management System (Health and Safety Manuals / Programs) are tailored to meet or exceed employment legislation and Occupational Health & Safety Regulations requirements in Saskatchewan and Alberta for an array of different scenarios.
The knowledge and experience of Piatt Safety Solutions lets you enjoy not only the peace of mind that comes with compliance, but a higher-quality, more efficient workplace. No matter the size of your organization, Piatt Safety Solutions can assist your company through each step to becoming COR/SECOR certified (Certificate of Recognition) and ensuring maintenance and inspection records, hazard identifications, incident and statistical reporting, training and safety meeting records are in place.
To become COR certified, an audit must be carried out by a certified auditor. The auditing process involves a review of the 13 basic elements of a Health and Safety Management System, personal interviews, documentation review, and workplace observation. To acquire COR certification, you must receive 80% overall mark with no less than 50% in any one element.
Achieving and maintaining a valid COR helps reduce costs associated with injuries on the job, resulting in potential reduction in the premiums your company pays to the Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB). Benefits for employers who implement an effective Health and Safety Management System:
Injury prevention and cost savings: A COR certified company can experience reduced financial costs associated with injuries and incidents that affect the company’s financial bottom line. A good safety record will enhance an organization’s reputation in the industry. Employers have found an evaluation of their health and safety program is an effective way to identify organizations weaknesses to be corrected. This can lead to improvements in the system, and fewer job injuries and less job interruptions will contribute to a more productive and profitable company.
Pre-bid qualification: COR certification is a pre-bid qualification requirement for many buyers of construction in Saskatchewan. Qualifying your company to bid puts your company at a decided advantage when compared to those companies that are not COR certified. The COR program is often referenced by construction owners and contractors to locate employers with a demonstrated commitment to accident prevention.
Due diligence: The documentation and general safety awareness produced by the COR process may also provide evidence of due diligence if your company is charged with a Occupational Health and Safety offence. Through the process of training, program development, and implementation, companies build a more effective organization.
