Pre-Payment for Audit Review Required

In order for COR™ Audit submissions to be reviewed, IHSA requires pre-payment.

Audits submitted to IHSA for review that have not had payment processed will be held until payment is received. Once payment is received by IHSA, the audit will be processed and will enter the audit queue for review.

Electronic COR™ Audit Tool Approval Process

IHSA is accepting applications for third-party, electronic COR™ Audit Tools. If your firm has created an electronic Audit Tool for use by auditors for either the COR™ 2015 Audit Tool or the COR™ 2020 Audit Tool, you can submit it to IHSA for review. Once approved it will be noted as an IHSA recognized electronic audit tool on the IHSA website, including a direct hyperlink.

After submission, IHSA will conduct a review of the Tool to ensure it meets all COR™ Audit requirements. If successful, IHSA will make it available on the IHSA COR™ webpage.

Certificate or Recognition

Recently, COR™ was enhanced to COR™ 2020 in order to help interested workplaces qualify for financial rewards and recognition from the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board. Learn more here.


The Certificate of Recognition (COR™) is nationally trademarked and endorsed by participating members of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA) of which the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA) is a member. It provides employers with an effective tool to assess their health and safety management system.

COR™ is aimed at driving positive workplace behaviour and practices that lead to improved performance. It is currently being used across Canada and is a pre-qualification requirement for many contractors working in and out of the province and on public- and private-sector projects.

The COR™ program began in Alberta more than 20 years ago. While the bulk of COR™ firms are in construction, the standard is used by major business sectors in Alberta and British Columbia.

The IHSA is the 'Authority having Jurisdiction' to grant COR™ in the province of Ontario. In achieving this national safety program accreditation in Ontario, IHSA is responsible to ensure that the COR™ standards are upheld. With one common audit instrument utilized across Canada, the national standard is clear: Minimum 65% in each element and an overall audit score of 80%.


Did you know?

As the only Authority having Jurisdiction to grant COR™ Certification in the province of Ontario, IHSA practices the utmost diligence to ensure that the COR™ standards are upheld. Caution should be taken if any other organization suggests that it is qualified to provide accredited COR™ training, COR™ audits or COR™ Certification.
