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.
