COR Certification

Ottawa COR™ Certification Assistance



Certificate of Recognition™ Assistance

The Certificate of Recognition™ program is aimed at encouraging safe and healthy workplace behavior. It encourages safety and health management systems to reduce accidents, incidents, and injuries reducing human and financial costs to businesses. In addition to making your workplace safer and more efficient, COR™ certification is often a pre-qualifying condition for contract projects in Canada. COR™ certification will bring your company to a new standard of health and safety, leading to safer job sites, fewer accidents, more accurate reporting and trend analysis.

Obtaining a COR™ on your own can be a challenging process, but Advanced Consulting & Training can help simply the process. Our expert safety consultants know the COR™ process inside-out and can help guide your company through the difficult and time-consuming process. We help you understand your current health and safety situation and create a custom roadmap to guide your company towards earning a Certificate of Recognition™.

Because the goal of COR™ certification is to ensure commitment to the highest level of health and safety, obtaining a Certificate of Recognition™ is a challenging and time-consuming process. COR™ certification is done in 4 steps:

  • Step 1. Submit your COR™ application form
  • Step 2. Complete the mandatory training courses.
  • Step 3. Complete and submit a self-audit of your workplace
  • Step 4. Successfully complete a third-party COR™ audit.

Each step of the COR™ certification process listed above presents its own set of unique challenges. Let Advanced Consulting and Training simplify the process and help your company prepare for COR™ certification in the most effective and efficient manner.

From the very beginning of our COR™ Certification Assistance consulting, we will identify the current gaps which might exist in your company through a thorough Gap Analysis. We will help with recommendations for your company to help close the gaps identified in the analysis. We will also provide a timeline for the COR™ program including deadlines, checkpoints, and other important items specific to your company to ensure no important steps or dates are missed. ACT will also help your business prepare for the internal and external audits required by the COR™ program.

COR™ certification is important to help protect your employees health and safety, prevent costly accidents, and make your company eligible for more contracts and projects.

COR certification (Certificate of Recognition) verifies that a construction related company has reached a safety level that is up to the national standard. The COR certification is offered by the IHSA (Infrastructure Health and Safety Association).

The time it takes to obtain your Certificate of Recognition™ depends on the existing Health and Safety Management System at your company, and whether it meets all existing COR™ requirements. Some companies are able to apply for COR™ certification very quickly, while other companies might take 12 to 18 months to implement all the elements required by the program. Contact us today to see how Advanced Consulting & Training can help your company achieve its COR™ certification!

COR™ is valid for 3 years if requirements of the program’s standards are met and certification is maintained by submitting annual audits. A Letter of Good standard is issued each year verifying that the elements and auditing standards are met. After three years, the company must re-apply to the COR™ program and restart the process over again.

COR certification is often required for both public and private construction contracts in Ontario.

COR certification greatly improves the capacity at which you and your workers are able to identify, assess, and control risks in the workplace. This results in an overall safer work environment.

Some of the benefits of COR certification include:

  • Creates a healthy and safe work culture
  • Enhances your corporate image
  • Provides recognized audit criteria
  • Comply to national standards
  • Identify & assess risks better
