As a Certifyng Partner for the forest industry in Alberta, the AFPA acts as a resource for its members and contractors, providing health and safety training, certifying auditors, conducting quality assurance reviews and providing ongoing guidance and general resources for those pursuing a Certificate of Recognition (COR).

What is COR?

The occupational health and safety Certificate of Recognition (COR) is an exclusive safety accreditation program. Audited by 13 independent Certifying Partners and recognized by the WCB, COR is the only government-approved safety program in the province. The COR program trains companies to maintain safety practices that meet industry standards. It’s a comprehensive process involving employee training, internal audits, independent adjudication and certification.

Companies that are serious about success are serious about safety. They’re COR-certified, and each promotes a culture of workplace health and safety that reaps substantial financial benefits, increases morale and productivity, reduces injuries and saves lives.

For more information about COR, visit the Alberta Labour website.
