The Partnerships in Injury Reduction (PIR)

The Partnerships in Injury Reduction (PIR) program promotes health and safety through partnerships with safety associations, industry groups, employers, educational institutions and labour organizations. In order to recognize employers who have developed a health and safety management system and met established standards, a Certificate of Recognition (COR) is awarded. Certificates are issued by Alberta Human Services and co-signed by Certifying Partners. Achieving and maintaining a valid COR is required to earn a financial incentive through the WCB’s Partnerships in Injury Reduction program.

What is PIR?

PIR is a voluntary program that can help reduce your premiums by up to 20 per cent while creating a safer workplace.
