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 SECOR Internal Auditor Training. Training consists of two parts: online study and interactive training administered by go2HR. To sign up, email Kori Gryschuk.
Once trained and certified as an internal auditor, your employee will be responsible for completing Maintenance Audits (Year 2 & 3) for your company. In many cases he or she may also take on the role of a safety champion to help develop and maintain the company’s safety management system.
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.
