COR® is an occupational safety and health accreditation program that verifies a fully implemented safety and health management system which meets national standards. The objectives of COR® are to provide industry employers with effective tools to develop, implement, assess, and promote continual improvement of their safety and health management system to prevent or mitigate incidents and injuries as well as their associated human and financial costs.

COR® is nationally registered, trademarked, and endorsed by the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA) and is delivered through member associations that have a formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to serve as the Authority Having Jurisdiction to grant COR® in their respective province/territory.

COR® Certification is a tender/contract requirement on the Government of Yukon projects involving construction activities. Please click here to connect with the YG website and further details.  

What contracts typically require COR®?

  • All Class “A” hazard construction activities as described in Schedule 1 of Part 18 – Minimum First Aid Requirements.

  • Construction activities identified in Section 1 of Yukon’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, including:

    • alteration; erection; repair; dismantling; demolition; structural maintenance; painting; land clearing; earth moving; grading; excavating; trenching; digging; boring; drilling; blasting; concreting; and the installation of any machinery.

    • COR® Certification is a requirement for other companies such as Yukon Energy. Please click here to connect with Yukon Energy’s website and further details. 

    • The City of Whitehorse Indemnified Contractors List: The City of Whitehorse has an opportunity for COR/SECOR companies to apply to be on the City of Whitehorse Indemnified contractors list for the next two years. If you have any questions about registration please contact Lynda Harlow at 867-668-8641 or at     

The Yukon government continues assessing the COR® requirement to address government and industry needs and to ensure Yukon continues to reap the benefits of a reduction of accidents and injuries as the public and private sector increase adopting safety practices. If a contract is subject to this requirement, it will be noted on the tender documents and must be maintained throughout life of the contract.
