WHAT IS COR™?​

COR logo

The Certificate of Recognition Program (COR™) is a nationally recognized accreditation program that verifies implementation of a safety and health management system which meets national safety standards for the construction industry.

COR™ is nationally trademarked and endorsed by the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations of which WORKSAFELY™ is a member.

The COR™ program uses a common audit framework to confirm company compliance with a national standard for safety.  COR™ is also used by government and private project owners across Canada as a pre-qualification and/or condition of contract.

WORKSAFELY™ works in partnership with other industry-based safety programs and SAFE Work Manitoba.  Implementation of COR enables companies to meet the WCB’s SAFE Work Certification standard and to qualify for the 15% prevention rebate on their WCB compensation premiums.

How to obtain COR™/SECOR™ Certification

As the Authority Having Jurisdiction to grant COR™ Certification in the province of Manitoba for the heavy construction industry, WORKSAFELY practices the utmost diligence to ensure that the COR™ standards are upheld.  Caution should be taken if any other organization suggests that it is able to provide COR™ training, COR™ audits or COR™ certification.

Don’t put yourself at risk.  Ask to see a current “Letter of Good Standing” or a COR™ Certificate.
