On-Track Railway & COR
A Certificate of Recognition (COR) is awarded to employers who develop health and safety programs that meet established standards.
A COR shows that the employer’s health and safety management system has been evaluated by a certified auditor and meets provincial standards. These standards are established by Occupational Health and Safety (OHS).

A Certifying Partner is an organization that:
- can help you develop a health and safety system
- provides health and safety training and services
- coordinates the audit process
- provides quality assurance
