COR™ – Certificate of Recognition

Ames is proud to be COR™ certified at all our branch locations, across British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba!

The Certificate of Recognition program (COR™) is an occupational health and safety accreditation program that verifies a fully implemented safety & health program which meets national standards. The objectives of COR™ are to provide industry employers with an effective safety and health management system to reduce incidents, accidents and injuries as well as their associated human and financial costs. COR™ is now frequently used as a pre-qualifying and/or condition of contract by public and private project owners across Canada. To obtain COR™ certification, companies must undergo an audit from an accredited auditor in each province, and achieve a mark of 80% or higher, including employee interviews regarding safety practices.
