COR & SECOR Audit Preparation


Certificate of Recognition (COR) Audits

Companies who employ 10 or more employees any time throughout the year are generally classified as a large employer and would be required to participate in the regular COR program. Although the process does vary depending on the certifying organization, you would need to have a program in place and have operated with it for a year prior to submitting it for an audit. Once the first certification audit is completed, and you’ve obtained a COR, you are only required to complete certification audits once every three years, with the other two years being classified as maintenance audits. Certification audits must typically be external audits which would be completed by a consulting auditor approved by the association you are seeking certification through. For the two maintenance years between certification, there are two options available. You can either request that a consulting auditor complete these audits as well, or anyone in the employ of the company can take a training course that would allow you to perform your own internal audit.

Throughout this entire process Performance Business Consulting will assist you. We will help select an auditor that is a true fit for your business, assist to ensure you are properly prepared for the audit, and assist in implementing the improvements recommended by the auditor.

Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR) Audits

Companies with less than 10 employees are generally classified as a small employer and required to participate in the SECOR program. This program is designed to accommodate the realities of small businesses. Although the process does vary depending on the certifying organization, this process typically allows for a slightly less in depth audit than required for a COR and allows you to take a basic training program that will allow you to complete your own audits.

Throughout this entire process Performance Business Consulting will assist you. We will help you prepare for the audit and work with you hand in hand to ensure that the audit you create tells the complete story of your safety program and properly demonstrates your level of implementation. During this process we will help you identify any areas of possible improvement and create an action plan that is practical and attainable for your business while ever striving to improve the level of implementation and compliance within your business.
