Step 4: The MHSA forwards a request for certification to Alberta Human Resources and Employment, Workplace Health & Safety for issuance of the Certificate of Recognition.
Step 5: The employer is required to maintain the COR by completing an internal self-audit in each of the following years. These audits are sent to the MHSA for review and feed back.
