COR Program

The Certificate of Recognition Program (COR™) is an occupational health and safety accreditation program that verifies a fully implemented safety & health program which meets national standards.

 The objectives of COR™ are to provide industry employers with an effective safety and health management system to reduce incidents, accidents and injuries as well as their associated human and financial costs.

 COR™ is nationally trademarked and endorsed by participating members of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA) of which the Construction Safety Association of Manitoba (CSAM) is a member.

 The Construction Safety Association of Manitoba is an authority having jurisdiction to grant COR™ in the province of Manitoba.   In achieving this national safety program accreditation, CSAM practices the utmost diligence to ensure that the COR™ standards are upheld.  With one common audit instrument utilized across Canada, the national standard is clear: Minimum 50% in each element and an overall audit score of 80%.

 COR™ is now frequently used as a pre-qualifying and/or condition of contract by public and private project owners across Canada (NEW Province of Manitoba tender requirements). COR™ is endorsed by Manitoba Labour, Workplace Safety and Health Branch and the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba (WCB). COR™ Certified status is the ultimate distinction verifying companies which have implemented a comprehensive safety program.

 The COR Certificate # 72503-14 is issued for 3 years and must be validated by an annual Letter of Good Standing to Maintain COR Certification.
