Certificate of Recognition (COR®)

COR Logo

COR® certification verifies companies have implemented a comprehensive health and safety program that meets national standards. Proven to reduce injuries, the COR® program can also provide a competitive advantage for pre-bid qualification, improved safety culture, cost savings and other benefits.

Steps to Achieve COR®

Submit an application including a signed COR® Agreement.
1. Complete required training
2. Develop and implement a safety program
Safety advisors are available to provide guidance and support to members every step of the way. Most companies will need at least six months to build a basic safety program.
3. Verification 
An external audit conducted by the SCSA verifies the health and safety program is achieving desired results and the company meets necessary standards to become COR® certified. To maintain certification, companies submit an annual internal audit and are audited every three years by the SCSA.

Registration Fees (Effective January 2024)

The SCSA provides COR® Registration at no cost to SCSA Members.
All other companies pay a $325 registration fee.
