There are almost 11,000 active Certificate of Recognition (COR) and Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR) holders in Alberta, almost half of which were achieved through the ACSA.
A COR / SECOR shows that the employer’s Health and Safety Management System (HSMS) has been evaluated by a certified auditor and meets provincial standards established by Partnerships in Injury Reduction (PIR).
Other benefits of COR / SECOR include:
- Creating a proactive workplace health and safety culture;
- Reducing the risks and costs associated with workplace incidents;
- Lowering WCB rates and qualifying a company for WCB PIR refunds; and
- Improving the overall efficiency at your work site.
Maintaining a COR / SECOR ensures the ongoing review of an employer’s Health and Safety Management System so that gaps can be identified and corrected. It also provides employers with an Alberta Government-issued certificate, recognizing their efforts in maintaining a healthy and safe workplace. And, of course, COR / SECOR qualifies employers for WCB premium refunds of up to 20 per cent!
