practical solutions
for a safer workplace

SECOR™ Program

Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR™) Program is an occupational health and safety accreditation program that verifies companies that have a fully implemented safety and health program that meets provincial standards. It’s like a simplified version of COR™ for smaller companies.



SECOR™ Meets SAFE Work Certified

The Construction Safety Association of Manitoba is an official partner of SAFE Work Manitoba and its SAFE Work Certified program.

SAFE Work Certified was created to help reduce workplace injuries and promote a safety culture in Manitoba. SAFE Work Manitoba’s partnered safety associations will be offering industry-based health and safety programs and certification that meets this standard.

We’re proud to announce that the Manitoba COR™/SECOR™ Certification Program meets the requirements of SAFE Work Manitoba’s SAFE Work Certified.


SECOR™ provides industry companies with fewer than 10 employees with an effective safety and health management system to reduce incidents, accidents and injuries along with their associated human and financial costs. SECOR™ offers a straightforward approach to safety that’s designed to provide contractors with practical solutions for a safer workplace.

Small employers often use SECOR™ as a stepping-stone to achieving COR™.  The main benefit of SECOR is that companies are provided with a generic safety manual and full electronic materials to customize policies – removing the large administrative concern of most small employers.

When you register into the SECOR™ Certification program, your company will receive a registration number and a USB with tools to help you create a personalized, customizable company safety manual that demonstrates your company’s commitment to safety.

The steps to achieving SECOR™ Certification include:
  1. Completion of three training modules:
