Proposed Policy Amendments and Practice Materials Regarding the Certificate of Recognition (COR) Program


The Policy, Regulation and Research Division is releasing a discussion paper on proposed policy amendments to the Certificate of Recognition (COR) Program. In addition, the Industry and Labour Services Department is releasing practice materials on proposed program developments.

The COR Program is a voluntary employer certification program designed to encourage employers in B.C. to take a proactive role in occupational health and safety. Employers registered in the COR Program who meet program requirements achieve a COR, and may be eligible to receive a financial incentive.

On January 26, 2016, WorkSafeBC’s Board of Directors (BOD) approved interim policies for the COR Program while new policies for the COR Program were being developed.

The policy review addresses proposed changes to those interim policies. The proposed practice materials address specific developments of the program. These proposed changes were developed based on feedback obtained from stakeholder consultation.

The discussion paper, draft policies, draft practice materials, and information on providing feedback can be accessed through the link below.

The consultation period will end on September 15, 2018. The BOD will consider stakeholder feedback before making a decision on policy amendments.

We look forward to receiving your submission.
