Certificate of Recognition

What is a Certificate of Recognition or COR?

GD Cornish was 1st in ft nelson to be COR certified (2004)

The Certificate of Recognition (COR) program is an initiative that recognizes employers who implement and maintain a health and safety management system that meet established provincial standards. Companies with a health and safety management system are able to identify and assess their workplace hazards and then systematically control the risks to their employees and overall operations. As a result, health and safety management systems can create a culture of proactive workplace safety.

The COR program has proven results!

A review in Alberta showed that employers with a COR had:

  • 25% lower claims costs than those who did not
  • A 40% reduction in Lost Time Claim Rates and Disabling Injury Rates
  • 50% lower fatality rates than the provincial average
