Frequently Asked Questions

What is a COR in auditing? 

COR stands for Certificate of Recognition. It is a certification given by the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA) to construction companies that demonstrate they meet an industry standard for health, safety and disability management. Passing a COR audit shows a company has an effective safety program in place. 

What is the minimum score for passing a COR audit? 

To receive COR certification, a construction company must score at least 80% on the COR audit. Audit scores below 80% are considered a failure, while scores of 90% or above are considered superior safety performance. 

What is a pre-audit checklist? 

A pre-audit checklist is a list of items that construction companies can review internally before undergoing an official COR audit. Checking things like safety policies, training records, hazard assessments, and other documentation ahead of time allows companies to identify and resolve any gaps in compliance. This helps ensure they will meet safety program standards when third-party COR auditors evaluate the company. Conducting internal pre-audits improves the likelihood of certification success.
