COR Policies

Energy Safety Canada's policy and procedure manual is designed to meet the combined requirements across all three provincial jurisdictions. This manual will be reviewed and adjusted as provincial standards change and our COR program evolves. The present version available includes all finalized Energy Safety Canada-specific standards through July 1, 2013. Where a topic is not yet addressed in this manual, provincial standards and/or the existing COR QA Manual are used and applied.

Individual Policies and Procedures

Specific policy questions should be directed to: CORInfo@EnergySafetyCanada.com

Provincial COR Program Standards

The Energy Safety Canada COR program is delivered under the direction of a number of provincial COR program standards. These include:

Partnerships: Standards for Certifying Partner Quality Assurance Systems (Alberta Government)

For a more detailed, legal breakdown of the roles and responsibilities for all parties involved in the COR certification process, view Energy Safety Canada's Outline of Roles and Responsibilities.

Types of Certificate of Recognitions

Types of Certificate of Recognitions

We offer three Certification of Recognition (COR) audits, depending on the size of your business:

SECOR

Small Employer Certificate of Recognition – for companies with less than 11 employees

MECOR

Medium Employer Certificate of Recognition – for companies with 10 to 19 employees

COR

Certificate of Recognition – for companies with 20 or more employees
 
 

Three-year COR

The standard COR certification is issued for three years. In the first year, you will receive a certification audit by an external auditor. Then, maintenance audits will be performed during the second and third years.

Three-year SECOR

If your company has less than 11 employees, your company is eligible for a SECOR certification. The SECOR is issued for three years and follows the same three-year cycle as the COR, but the audit protocol and requirements are different. Learn more about the SECOR process. Learn More 

Three-year MECOR

The MECOR is designed for growing SECOR certified companies or new companies to the COR program who have 10-19 employees. Over the course of a three-year cycle, employers transition from a SECOR to a COR-based certification. Learn more about the MECOR process. Read More about the MECOR process.

 

One-year COR

A one-year COR may be issued when an employer is new to the COR program and their safety management system is less than a year old. Both provincial governing bodies and Energy Safety Canada must jointly approve a One-year COR. One-year CORs may also be issued in other unique circumstances as needed.

Six-month COR

A six-month COR may be granted in special situations, such as when an existing COR is about to expire and, for a number of reasons, there are no worksites available to audit. In these situations, an administrative audit may be performed, which is limited to reviewing documentation and interviewing employees at the administrative site.

Partnership Audit Standard Equivalency (PASE)

If a large company has a developed safety program with well-established health and safety management systems, the employer may apply to Energy Safety Canada for participation in the Partnerships Audit Standard Equivalency (PASE) program. The employer must meet specific criteria to qualify for participation in the program.

Types of Audits

Types of Audits

Baseline Audit

A baseline audit determines the extent and limitations of an employer's current safety program. This audit provides information concerning areas of the safety program that require upgrading.

Certification Audit for COR – External Audit

The external audit for COR certification audits an employer’s safety program. The audit needs to be conducted by an Energy Safety Canada certified auditor who is not an employee of the company being reviewed. An external audit must be conducted on three-year intervals to renew an existing COR.

Maintenance Audit for COR – Internal Audit

In the second and third year of a three-year COR cycle, a maintenance audit must be performed. This audit may be conducted by an Energy Safety Canada certified internal auditor who is an employee of the company.

Certification Audit for SECOR – Conducted by a SECOR Assessor

The SECOR program allows a small employer to submit information and health and safety management system documents to Energy Safety Canada for review to obtain SECOR certification. The SECOR program requires a representative of the company to complete a two-day training course.

Administrative Audit

In the event that a company is required to perform an audit for re-certification purposes, but does not have active worksites available to audit, an administrative audit may be performed and a six-month COR may be issued. Documentation and interviews are still conducted, but observations are limited to the available administrative site.

Injury Management/Return-to-Work Audit

An Injury Management/Return-To-Work (IM/RTW) audit measures a company's management system. The official IM/RTW audit program with WorkSafeBC is currently suspended, but maintenance IM/RTW audits will be accepted at this time. Learn more about the program changes below.

IM/RTW Program Changes

 

 

Maintaining a COR

The COR is valid for three years from the date of issue, providing that all maintenance requirements are met. The date the audit is completed on-site is used as the COR issue date. 

For maintenance requirements for SECOR audits, click here.

What determines when COR maintenance audits are due?

  • An employer must complete annual COR maintenance requirements in order to maintain the validity of their certificate.
  • The 1st year maintenance audit is due within the first 12 months after the COR issue date (or anniversary date).
  • The 2nd year maintenance audit is due within 24 months after the COR issue date (or anniversary date).

Maintaining

COR Maintenance audits are subject to the same Quality Assurance (QA) Review as Certification/Recertification COR audits. The passing mark for maintenance audits is 60% overall.

To renew a COR, an employer will arrange for an external auditor to perform a recertification audit and have it completed and reviewed by Energy Safety Canada prior to the expiration date of the COR. The passing mark is 80% overall and at least 50% in each element.

You earned your COR, be proud of it! The logo can be used on your website, letterhead, or other internal documents to demonstrate that you have achieved COR or SECOR status. Please refer to the PDF Guideline document below for proper use and placement of the COR logo.

The COR logo was developed as part of a campaign led by the Alberta Construction Safety Association and other industry safety groups, in partnership with Alberta Human Services. Energy Safety Canada is proud to be a sponsor of this campaign.
