Start-to-finish COR™ Certification Support

Here are the components of our Full COR Assistance Service, guaranteed to get you COR™ certified:

Gap Analysis

We start off with a Gap Analysis. Thus, we look at your current health and safety program along with your policies and procedures. Further, we evaluate how they compare to the IHSA COR standard. In fact, Gap Analysis serves as a roadmap for achieving IHSA COR compliance. Moreover, it highlights where the gaps exist and the areas you need to focus on. Therefore, it acts as a strong due diligence document, since it reflects your consistent efforts to improve your program. Often, Gap Analysis is a good starting point for us to understand your existing program.

Hazard Assessment

A critical component to meeting the COR™ standard is having a hazard assessment done for your business. Therefore, during the hazard assessment phase, we assess your current workplace environment and workflow from start to finish. Further, we identify all the points of risk. Hence, it is clear what policies, procedures, and training are required for each checkpoint to ensure due diligence. Moreover, this will be compiled into a report which will be used in your work manual.

A job hazard analysis (JHA) is a systematic approach to mitigating OHS risks. First of all, no hazard analysis is going to capture every task and the associated hazards with that task. In fact, people will forget everything that they do. Further, they may change the way they do something because of broken machinery. Therefore, hazard analysis is going to change over time as you uncover new tasks. This is largely because you simultaneously uncover new hazards as well. Therefore, the flow is the most critical part of your analysis. It will help you determine the activities that give you the end result. Thus, it allows you to identify the training, equipment, and procedures that need to be followed. Once you have the job hazard analysis (JHA), you need to integrate it into your business flow. Once that’s done, you need to keep your system up-to-date.

Program Implementation

After the hazard assessment, we are now ready to develop your program. Therefore, your policies and procedures will be updated to meet the COR™ standard while being entirely customized to your unique work environment. Moreover, the Health and Safety Manual will be compiled and organized in accordance to the IHSA COR elements – for easy verification. Further, all the necessary training will be administered as a part of the implementation with the primary focus of embracing the health and safety culture.

Internal Audit Submission

We will train and assist your internal auditor to prepare all the required documentation and supporting information for your internal audit submission. This is a very crucial and time intensive stage of the COR certification process. We will help you prepare for all the interviews and ensure you pass all the requirements.


We at 4S Consulting Services believe that a company must embrace safety as part of its corporate culture. In fact, that is the only way to reduce risk and ensure your employees get home to their loved ones every night. Moreover, the idea of COR compliance truly promotes this philosophy. Therefore, to ensure that you are doing the necessary work to embrace this philosophy, an internal audit is required every year to see where the company stands in order to receive a Letter of Good Standing. During the monitoring phase, we monitor the health and safety program, meeting with the team periodically to help improve your program and ensure that the company as a whole embraces the safety culture.

IHSA COR health and safety program is becoming a buzz word these days, especially in the southern Ontario region. In fact, with TTC, GTA, GTAA, City of Brampton, and York Region, among others consistently asking for COR certification, the demand for COR is only going to increase. Therefore, COR certification provides companies with the best chance of showing how dedicated they are towards workplace health and safety. Moreover, the COR™ certification helps contractors win the confidence of the owners of construction projects. In fact, this is largely because of a health and safety program, which COR certified companies will have on an ongoing basis.
