Certification of Recognition (COR)

The C.O.R. is achieved by writing and implementing an organized safety program that incorporates safety policies, forms and paperwork, safe work practices and safe job procedures into a cohesive system that helps keep your workers safe and your directors protected. All documents, sites and staff are audited internally on an annual basis, and by a peer auditor or by a registered external auditor, every three years.

The C.O.R. is issued to employers who develop health and safety programs that meet established provincial standards. Certification is issued by Alberta Employment and Immigration and co-signed by W.C.B. and one of several certifying partners, including:

  • Alberta Municipal Health and Safety Association (AMHSA)

  • Alberta Safety Council (A.S.C.)

  • Continuing Care Safety Association


  • Manufacturers’ Health & Safety Association (MHSA)

  • Western Wood Truss Association of Alberta

  • Alberta Association for Safety Partnerships (AASP)

  • Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA)

  • Alberta Corporate Human Resources

  • Alberta Food Processors Association

  • Alberta Forest Products Association (AFPA)

  • Alberta Hotel Safety Association (AHSA)

  • Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA)

These three organizations form what is, collectively, known as The Partnerships Group, which ultimately issues the COR.

A C.O.R recognizes that a certified auditor has evaluated the employer's health and safety management system, which must meet partnership standards.
