Preparation for the COR Audit

Preparation for the COR Audit

It is crucial for companies considering obtaining a COR certification to internally prepare rigorously for the Certificate of Recognition (COR) Audit. While it may seem like an extensive process, with the right knowledge, the safety department or internal auditor can achieve proper preparation for success. So, what do you need for adequate preparation?

Planning for the COR Audit


Establishing a Work Plan

Within the essential courses we offer for COR certification, there is a detailed work plan that identifies the necessary steps to ensure compliance and success during the COR audit. This plan not only serves for the audit but also provides relevant information to optimize the company’s safety area and internal assessment systems to measure the functionality of improvements.

Collecting Required Documentation for the Audit

Internal auditors are informed about the meticulous collection of necessary documentation, ensuring complete and accurate presentation of the required information. This includes event records and safety manuals.

Developing an Action Plan to Address Non-Conformity Issues

Those taking courses from Think Safety Solution will have access to specific strategies to address any identified non-conformity issues, ensuring their correction before the audit. In other words, they can conduct an internal review before the appointment to apply corrections.

Finalizing Documentation before Presentation to Internal and External Auditors

Knowing the necessary documentation and having sufficient time to ensure it is ready for presentation to external auditors is crucial, minimizing any possible delays.

Self-Assessment Process for the Audit

We facilitate the self-assessment process, allowing your company to identify critical areas for improvement before the official audit.

Reviewing Documentation Presented by the Company

The person responsible for internal auditing must thoroughly review the presented documentation, ensuring its integrity and compliance with COR audit standards.

On-Site Inspection and Review of Safety Programs, Policies, and Procedures

The company must be prepared for on-site inspections, where internal and external auditors will review safety programs, policies, and procedures to ensure alignment with required standards.

Evaluation of Training Records and Training Programs

Once the basic preparation by the internal auditor is complete, it is necessary to implement employee training strategies. All these processes must be documented to demonstrate to external auditors the steps taken by the company to achieve occupational health and safety.

Compliance Assessment with National Regulations and Standards

In our course on relevant Alberta legislation, we assist internal auditors in verifying their company’s compliance with national regulations, ensuring adherence to COR audit standards.
