Start-to-finish COR™ Certification Support

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

Gap Analysis

First, we start off with a Gap Analysis. Then, we look at your current health and safety program along with your policies and procedures. Next, we evaluate how they compare to the IHSA COR standard. In fact, Gap Analysis serves as a roadmap for achieving IHSA COR compliance. Furthermore, it highlights where the gaps exist. Thus, it shows you the areas you need to focus on. Therefore, a hazard assessment acts as a strong due diligence document, since it reflects on your consistent efforts to improve your program. In conclusion, Gap Analysis is a good starting point for us to get a good understanding of your existing program. In conclusion. it will show you a roadmap of where you currently are and where you need to be.

Hazard Assessment

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

Hazard Assessment – A Systematic Approach

Hazard assessment is a systematic approach for mitigating OHS risks. For starters, no hazard analysis is going to capture every task and the associated hazards with that task. In fact, people generally tend to forget some of the things they do. Moreover, they may change the way they perform certain tasks because of using broken or new machinery or technological upgrades. Therefore, hazard analysis is going to change over time as you uncover new tasks. What’s more, you will simultaneously discover new hazards during performing your various tasks.

Thus, you will need to adjust your task operations accordingly. Therefore, the flow is the most critical part of your hazard analysis. Subsequently, it will help you determine the activities that give you the end result. Furthermore, your hazard assessment allows you to identify the training, equipment, and procedures that need to be followed up on. Once you have the job hazard analysis (JHA), you need to integrate it into your business flow. Next,  you need to update your health and safety management system based on your latest updated hazard assessment.

Program Implementation

First, you perform a hazard assessment. Next, you are ready to develop your health and safety program. Then, we will update your policies and procedures to meet the COR™ standard. Additionally, we will customize your policies and procedures to blend in with your unique work environment. Next, we will compile your Health and Safety Manual. Then, we will organize it in accordance to the IHSA COR elements. Further, we will administer all the necessary training as a part of the COR program implementation. In the end, our primary focus is to ensure that your company embraces health and safety as part of its organizational culture.
