The COR™ Workshop program is a series of 5 one-day sessions designed to provide participants with a systematic approach to building an effective Health and Safety Management System (HSMS) while making sure it aligns with the requirements of the Certificate of Recognition (COR™) program. The in-class work includes developing a company-specific action plan, which is completed between each session and brought back for evaluation. To obtain maximum benefit from the workshop, participants are expected to commit to all five sessions. Participants will receive a certificate of completion.
COR™ 2020 aligns to the Ministry of labour, Training and Skill Development’s accreditation standard, and will help safe workplaces qualify for financial rebates and recognition available under two new provincial programs:
- Supporting Ontario’s Safe Employers (SOSE)
- Health and Safety Excellence program (HESP)
This means by achieving COR™ 2020 workplaces are fully implementing an accredited Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS), recognized by the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development and the Workplace Safety Insurance Board.
COR™ 2020 shows buyers of construction that your health and safety management system is a top priority in your company. Firms registered in the COR™ 2020 program may qualify ahead of others for certain jobs.
In Ontario, more than 450 companies have become COR™ 2020 certified, with over 1900 currently registered.
By attending you will have an opportunity to meet members of IHSA’s COR™ team. You will learn about COR™ 2020 through different presentations and have opportunities to ask questions. There is also a networking session where you can connect with other companies pursuing COR™ 2020.
