What is the Certificate of Recognition Program?
The Certificate of Recognition program is an incentive program recognizing and rewarding employers for implementing an effective Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) program which demonstrates a commitment to workplace health and safety. Participation in the program is voluntary.
The COR program is a natural extension of your existing health and safety program.
Our Consultants and Advisors will help you fill the gaps in your safety program and decide if now is the right time to take part in the COR program.
Employers who participate in the program could receive a WorkSafeBC rebate of up to 10% of the assessment premiums paid in the prior year.
The rebate is dependent on successfully completing an Occupational Health and Safety management program audit.
