John McMahon is AgSafeBC’s Certificate of Recognition program manager.

With a career spanning over twenty-five years in occupational health and safety in multiple industry sectors, John brings a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience of safety management systems, including how to build, implement and audit them effectively. Having a formal business education and experience running his own company, John can also relate to the operational challenges that employers can sometimes face, but he also relishes helping businesses overcoming them.

As an ambassador for the COR program in BC, John feels that COR is a fantastic opportunity for employers, large and small, especially in the agriculture sector to demonstrate that they are operating their businesses at a high standard of safety.

Having provided this service in other industry sectors, John is well positioned to provide support to all aspects of the COR program, mentoring and guiding employers, external and internal auditors.

John says; “Achieving COR certification essentially says to workers, the competition, the supply chain, customers and industry that as a company, you mean business when it comes to safety in the workplace”.
