How to Participate in SECOR

Participate in the SECOR program and take advantage of all the benefits of getting certified with COR, but with a tailored process and specially designed resources for small employers.

1. Register in the program

Register with go2HR on the COR registration page online. Once registered, review the Small Employer COR (SECOR) Program Policies and Procedures Manual for more detailed information. 

2. Identify a COR Champion

After registering for the program, identify a COR champion within your workplace who can lead the process. This person should know about your workplace policies and procedures, and has the ability to implement training programs and policies as required.

3. Sign up for SECOR Internal Auditor Training

Once you have a champion in place, he or she should sign up for our SECOR Internal Auditor Training. Training consists of two parts: online study and interactive training, administered by go2HR. Your champion will also work to develop and then maintain your safety management system.

When your champion has completed their SECOR Internal Auditor Training they will carry out their student audit (which also acts as your initial Certification Audit) and they will be your Internal Auditor. Your Internal Auditor will also be responsible for completing Maintenance Audits (years two and three) for your company.

The SECOR Internal Auditor Training costs $149 + applicable taxes.

To sign up, click on the following button. You will be directed to make a payment via PayPal. Once your payment has been processed you will receive confirmation and instructions on how to log into your e-learning account and start your learning.


4. Develop your Safety Management System

There is a step-by-step self-assessment guide that you can use to navigate each SECOR program audit element, and download training resources and templates to fill any gaps in your safety management system.

5. Submit your Notice of Audit Activity

Once you have all the elements of your safety management system in place, you are ready to audit your own program. Submit your Notice of Audit Activity to go2HR at least two weeks before starting your audit.

6. Submit your Completed Audit

Upon completing your Audit Activity, you must submit your completed SECOR Audit Tool, along with required documents, to go2HR for a quality assurance review.

7. Become COR Certified

If you pass the quality assurance review, go2HR will forward successful audit details to WorkSafeBC for the approval of your COR certification.
