Northstar is COR Certified

Northstar Access is excited to announce it is now COR Certified in Ontario! With this certification Northstar is now COR certified Canada wide. This accomplishment could not been achieved without the great effort and commitment to Health & Safety from all Northstar employees in Ontario and throughout Canada.

The Certificate of Recognition (COR™) program is a voluntary audit-based employer certification program intended to motivate employers to take a proactive role in occupational health and safety. COR™ ensures companies have a health and safety management system (HSMS) that meets all legislative requirements. This is based on established standards set out by the IHSA and ISO 45001 and are often mandatory for contracts within the public and private sectors for construction projects here in Ontario.

What does being COR Certified mean for a construction company?

  • By achieving COR™, companies are able to demonstrate to others that their HSMS is top tier. COR Certification proves that your HSMS has been created with high standards. It also proves that your HSMS has met high safety standards and is evaluated in detail on a regular basis using both internal and external audits.
  • COR™ audits hold value. An audit will typically include interviews, documentation review, and observation techniques. These audits are used to evaluate how well the employer is able to identify, assess, and control workplace safety risks.
  • Companies with COR™ will be part of a nationwide network participating in and promoting health and safety excellence. The COR™ auditing criteria is nationally respected and recognized. It is been endorsed by participating members of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA).
  • The achievement of COR™ is an asset in a competitive market. It can give you job bidding advantages and can qualify you ahead of others for certain jobs. Companies can make COR certification a requirement for contractors bidding on jobs. They know that can be confident in the contractor’s health and safety performance.
  • COR™ supports your employees. Protecting the health and safety of all workers at all times is the right thing to do. Effective development and maintenance of an HSMS is a proactive approach to eliminating workplace injuries and illnesses.
  • Certainly, achieving COR Certification shows a commitment to a strong culture of safety will attract safety-conscious workers.
  • Being able to provide immediate proof that you have an effective HSMS in place will give your organization a competitive advantage. As a result, your clients can be confident that you will bring superior safety practices to the workplace.

COR™ certification is a rigorous process, and it’s one that we are proud to have completed. Our team is committed to the highest safety standards and practices in the industry. Something that we will continue to promote as we move forward.
