MECOR Process


The Medium Employer Certificate of Recognition (MECOR) Process is designed to help companies bridge the gap between small employer (SECOR) and large employer (COR) standards and certification processes. To be eligible to acquire certification through the MECOR Process, an employer must be either an existing SECOR holder, or an employer that is brand new to the COR program and has between 10 and 19 employees.

MECOR Process

The employer must take the following steps if you are new to coR:

Register your company
If you're new to COR, register with Energy Safety Canada, if you are in Alberta, you also need to register your company in the WCB Partners in Injury Reduction program
 
Course Requirements
If you're new to COR successfully complete Energy Safety Canada's two-day Safety Program Development Course
 
Refresher Course Requirements
If you are an existing SECOR holder ensure refresher course requirements have been met
 
Health and Safety Management System
Develop and implement a health and safety management system that meets provincial standards
 
Audit Performed
Select an Energy Safety Canada Certified H&S Auditor, to have a SECOR audit performed and get a passing mark of 80% overall with no less than 50% in any one element
 
Audit Submission
Have your auditor submit the SECOR audit to Energy Safety Canada for Quality Assurance (QA) Review. A three-year SECOR will then be issued for audits that meet the required standard

 

Maintenance Process

In the two maintenance years an employer may use either an external Energy Safety Canada Certified H&S Auditor or have an employee become certified and serve as an internal Energy Safety Canada Certified H&S Auditor to perform maintenance audits using the COR audit protocol.

After three successful years in the MECOR Process, an employer would move into the standard COR certification process.

year Two

In the first maintenance year the audit must score at least 50% overall for the employer to maintain their certification

Year Three

In the second maintenance year the audit must score at least 70% overall and no less than 50% in each audit element for the employer to maintain their certification


Our goal:
