Steps to COR

1) Registration and Self Assessment
2) Program Enhancement
3) Certification

Benefits of Participating in the COR Program

A functioning Health and Safety Program helps ensure workers and workplaces are safe from injury, illness and disease. This is accomplished through hazard identification, assessment and control.

Annual incentive payments are awarded to eligible employers who have earned a Certificate of Recognition (COR). An employer can receive a 10% incentive payment based on their annual premium paid to WorkSafeBC in the prior year by having a functioning health and safety program at the workplace.

A successful audit result of 80% or higher is required to receive a Certificate of Recognition.
