BOWEN is one of a small number of companies in our industry that possess the Certificate of Recognition (COR). COR is issued to employers who develop and implement health and safety programs that meet established standards. It is not unusual for Alberta corporations to expect contractors bidding on contracts to hold a valid COR certification. BOWEN not only meets these standards but has achieved provincial recognition and was a recipient of a Work Safe Alberta Best Safety Performer Award.
Our COR certification provides us a financial incentive through the WCB Partnerships in Injury Reduction program through reduced WCB rates which translate directly to the customer in terms of reduced burden rates. BOWEN not only meets these standards but has achieved provincial recognition and was a recipient of a Work Safe Alberta Best Safety Performer Award.
The standards for COR include:
- Program administration
- Emergency response planning
- Employer policy and management commitment
- Worker competency and training
- Hazard identification
- Hazard control measures
- Inspection programs
- Incident reporting and investigation
