How to obtain a cor certification

The renewal is usually more straightforward since they do not require implementing significant changes in the operation or training; it is only necessary to contact the trusted certification partner so that an annual audit certifies and requests the renewal of the COR. 

Generally, at least Think Safety Solutions does; the certifying partners manage a follow-up control to their clients. The intention is to remind employers to coordinate the audit at the appropriate time for renewal; in this space, you can take advantage of the advice to know the status of the occupational health and safety department.

Step by step to obtain a COR certificate:


1. Real commitment from employers:

Commitment to leaders extends to the rest of the team; It is vital to achieving the certificate to have the support and receptivity of the changes by the entire team.

For this reason, leaders of the company must be committed to creatively finding ways to encourage the rest of the team in the movement. 

2. Create an occupational health and safety program:

At this point, the employer should hire an expert in the area and develop a department oriented to optimize this field to enable the necessary changes. 

This department should be in charge of identifying risks, elaborating a risk management plan, defining the health and safety guidelines to be followed by employees according to their responsibilities, and finally making a list of suggestions for compliance. 

Many companies require specialized external help to optimize this department, and it is valid to rely on professionals in the area to help you monitor and adjust your work routine to the safety standards evaluated in the COR. 

3. Specialized training:

Step by step to obtain a COR certificate

The occupational health and safety department must be equipped and prepared with updated information, strategies, and leadership to strengthen it to implement the necessary changes. 

The employer must provide training to its employees to recognize the risks, tools, and safety options available and, at the same time, learn to lead teams under the established occupational health and safety programs. 

4. Time for the audit:

Once the previous steps are completed, the company is ready to receive an audit that evaluates its occupational health and safety management capacity. This audit establishes, under a test parameter, whether or not the company can obtain the certificate. 

This audit is carried out by an organization registered as a certifying partner with the government of the corresponding jurisdiction. They are professional auditors who know the COR standards and ethically evaluate the company’s risk management. 

This audit considers a variety of issues related to the correct use of machines, quality of the facilities, employee perception, etc. 

5. Compliance with current regulations:

It is essential that you learn the regulations established in the law on occupational safety and health as employers. In this way, you can clarify the responsibilities that fall on the company in case of accidents, injuries, or a bad working environment. 

Identifying this responsibility provides an idea of how to avoid failures and thus improve the management of the work routine.
