What is it?
SAFE Companies is a Certificate of Recognition

for all COR participants.
Auditors will be required
to complete their training by December 31, 2012 to receive a COR rebate
for 2012. This requirement cannot be assigned to a contractor
If you choose not to complete the
required refresher training, you will continue to be SAFE Certified
and registered in the SAFE Companies program, however you will not be
eligible for the rebate.
When you first registered for SAFE Companies,
you attended the Individual Owner Operator training (IOO); this made
you the company 'auditor'. To help you improve safety management
within you company, the WorkSafeBC Certificate of Recognition program
requires auditors to attend 4 hours of refresher training every 3 years.
2012 will be the first year the Council has offered the training.
What will I learn?
The focus of the course will be on helping
you streamline and improve your safety program and audit submission.
The course examines real life case studies of how other companies are
managing safety in their business and identifies improvements to your
safety system to reduce the paperwork burden.
