COR & Safe Work Certified

What is COR & Safe Work Certified?

COR™ & SAFE Work Certification is a benchmark accreditation that often acts as a pre-qualifier or condition of awarded contracts by both public and private project owners across Canada. The standard it endorse by Manitoba Labour, Workplace Health and Safety, and the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba (WBC). COR™ is nationally recognized and endorsed by the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Association (CFCSA), among others, and COR™ certified employers have the Prevention Rebate Program that awards a 15% rebate on WCB assessment premiums, or for small businesses, $3,000 (to a max. of 75% of assessment premiums).


COR™ (Certificate of Recognition) is nationally trademarked and endorsed by participating member of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA).

Injury Prevention and Cost Savings:

A COR™ or SAFE Work certified company can experience reduced financial costs associated with injuries and incidents that affect the company’s financial bottom line. A good safety record will enhance an organization’s reputation in the industry. Employers have found an evaluation of their health and safety program is an effective way to identify organizations weaknesses to be corrected. This can lead to improvements in the system, and fewer job injuries and less job interruptions will contribute to a more productive and profitable company.

Pre-Bid Qualification:

COR & SAFE Work certification is a pre-bid qualification requirement for many construction projects in many provinces. Qualifying your company to bid puts your company at a decided advantage when compared to those companies that are not COR or SAFE Work certified. The COR program is often referenced by construction owners and contractors to locate employers with a demonstrated commitment to accident prevention.

Due Diligence:

The documentation and general safety awareness produced by the COR & SAFE Work Certified process may also provide evidence of due diligence if your company is charged with a Workplace Health and Safety offence. Through the process of training, program development, and implementation, companies build a more effective organization and can prove due diligence.
