Certificate of Recognition (COR)
A Certificate of Recognition (COR) is a government-approved safety program that awards employers who develop health and safety management safety systems that meet established provincial standards. Through the Partnerships in Injury Reduction (PIR) program, certificates are issued by Alberta Human Services and are co-signed by Certifying Partners.
Certifying Partners (CPs) are health and safety associations that promote worksite health and safety practices in Alberta.
We are the recognized Certifying Partner for the manufacturing industry. WCB codes 30100 and 62500 pay member fees through a levy collected by WCB. We have in-depth industry knowledge and use it to help you promote and develop workplace health and safety practices. Certifying Partners are authorized by the Government of Alberta to deliver the Partnership program to Alberta employers interested in earning a COR.

What is a Health and Safety Management System?
A health and safety management system is a proactive approach to minimizing the risk of injury or illness to workers. This is accomplished by identifying, assessing and controlling risks to workers in all workplace operations. The scope and complexity of a health and safety management system will vary according to the type of workplace and the nature of operations carried out.
The elements of a system include:
- Management commitment
- Hazard identification and assessment
- Hazard control
- Worker competency and training
- Emergency response planning
- Incident investigation
We provide the training you need to create and maintain an effective health and safety management system. Find out more.
