Saskatchewan Certificate of Recognition (COR®) Program
The Certificate of Recognition (COR®) program is an occupational health and safety program designation verifying that a company has a fully-implemented health and safety management system that meets national standards. COR is nationally trademarked and is endorsed by participating members of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA), including the Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association (SCSA). The objective of COR is to provide companies with the knowledge and tools to develop effective health and safety management systems to identify weaknesses that can lead to costly workplace injuries and incidents.
COR is the national standard in safety recognition in the safety industry and its objective is to reduce incidents and their associated human and financial costs. COR certification is now frequently required as a pre-qualification and/or condition of contract by public and private buyers of construction across Canada. A significant number of industry-leading Saskatchewan companies are COR certified.
COR Program Certification Benefits
Our Membership with HCSA
The Mission of the Heavy Construction Safety Association of Saskatchewan Inc. is to promote the arts and science of safety to the “R” code employers & their employees in order to try to reduce incidents & accidents that result in injury & property damage. By reducing incidents & accidents, the goal is to reduce unnecessary pain & suffering & reduce costs.
The HCSAS started originally as the Roadbuilders Safety Association in 1957. To reflect the diversity of the employers in the “R” code the association was incorporated on October 2, 1995 as the Heavy Construction Safety Association of Saskatchewan Inc.
Employers in the “R” code are involved in the following activities:
· High Line Electrical Work
· Sewer & Water Work
The one thing that ties our diverse group together is that we all use large equipment, and we dig in the dirt. A company becomes a member of the HCSAS as soon as they pay into the “R” code of Saskatchewan Worker’s Compensation.
The benefits of belonging are that the company is entitled to the products and services of the Association. We ensure that our companies have the latest in Safety Regulations and Resources that are currently provided to maintain the highest standards, these include:
