COR® is an occupational safety and health accreditation program that verifies a fully implemented safety and health management system which meets national standards. The objectives of COR® are to provide industry employers with effective tools to develop, implement, assess, and promote continual improvement of their safety and health management system to prevent or mitigate incidents and injuries as well as their associated human and financial costs.
COR® is nationally registered, trademarked and endorsed by the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA) and is delivered through member associations that have a formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to serve as the Authority Having Jurisdiction to grant COR® in their respective province/territory – CSAM serves as the Authority Having Jurisdiction to grant COR® in Manitoba.
The program is also is endorsed by:
Although COR® is the national standard, COR® Certification must be granted by the Authority Having Jurisdiction in each of the provinces/territories you work.
COR® Reciprocity can be granted to companies that are COR® Certified through a CFCSA member but do not have a permanent base of operations in the jurisdiction they are requesting reciprocity from. A straightforward process is available to companies that have achieved COR® and would like to request reciprocity in another jurisdiction. Please see the COR® Equivalency/Reciprocity section below for details.
