When your company registered for SAFE Companies, you attended the Individual Owner Operator (IOO) training course. This made you the company’s internal ‘auditor’. The WorkSafeBC (WSBC) Certificate of Recognition program requires auditors to complete four (4) hours of refresher training every three years to maintain the quality and currency of their skills and knowledge to be eligible for the WSBC COR rebate.
Refresher training focuses on helping to improve safety management within your company, as well as reviewing the audit submission process and relevant updates.
In order to receive a COR rebate for 2012, you will be required to complete refresher training by December 31, 2012 if your initial IOO course was taken prior to December 31, 2009. This training requirement applies only to your WSBC COR rebate and does not impact your SAFE Companies certification status, providing you submit a successful audit by your due date in 2012.
Completion of one of the following types of refresher training sessions for Individual Owner Operators will make you eligible for your 2012 COR rebate:
WorkSafeBC has also approved 4 Council courses as equivalency for refresher training, if one of the following is completed in 2012:
