COR Action Plan

ACSA’s COR Action Plans offer an alternative way for companies to audit and maintain their Certificate of Recognition (COR).

Instead of conducting an internal audit, COR companies now have the option to develop and deliver an Action Plan that maps out measurable goal-setting using a company’s combined corporate and safety objectives.

This self-scoring, holistic approach improves a company’s health and safety management system by strengthening its alignment to, and understanding of, the company’s important corporate objectives.

This  innovative approach to evaluating a health and safety system provides companies with an opportunity to ‘think outside the box’ and identify certain gaps in their safety program.

Note: Action Plan applications for 2016 have now closed. To inquire about applying for 2017, please contact our COR Reviewer Department.

Is your company eligible?

Action Plans are available to COR-holding companies and can only be applied once a company has completed at least one re-certification external audit cycle. A COR member that does not meet the criteria cannot conduct an Action Plan at this time and must instead conduct an internal audit.

Please note that Action Plans are not available to SECOR companies at this time.

To determine if you qualify for an Action Plan, click on the following link and complete the brief questionnaire.

Not yet eligible?

If at this time your company does not qualify for an Action Plan, please continue to follow the standard COR process as outlined on the ACSA website.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact ACSA’s COR and SECOR departments.
