standard for the province that your program will be there." Buyers of construction across the province echo the sentiments of CPO Gritziotis in recognition of the validity of COR™ demonstrating a well-managed, implemented and evaluated internal responsibility system. The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) now requires contractors to be registered COR™ firms to qualify for contracts over $5M, and by 2018 expect all contractors to be COR™ certified irrespective of the value of the contract. Metrolinx currently requires COR™ certified status for projects over $25M and expect that by October 1st of this year, all projects regardless of their value will require COR™ certification. The recent commitment from the City of Toronto shows that the largest municipality in Canada views COR™ as a viable system to guard the safety of the city and its workers as stated in a public communiqué: "As part of the City of Toronto's ongoing commitment to health and safety, the City of Toronto is endorsing and adopting the COR TM program as part of our construction contract management and construction tendering process. The City firmly believes that introducing COR TM as a new component in the City's construction procurement process and contractor management program will have a positive and significant impact on the delivery of construction activities for the City, the contractors and the well-being of City of Toronto residents." Along with research findings1 from British Columbia concerning COR™ which demonstrate a 12% reduction in Lost Time Injuries and a 17% reduction in Serious Injuries, more and more organizations are recognizing the effectiveness of a comprehensive health and safety audit tool that is managed internally. But they're also recognizing that the value of COR™ goes beyond the safety of the workplace. With over 800 workplaces registered to achieve COR™ in Ontario, and with more buyers of construction demanding COR™ as a prequalification, a competitive edge has developed for those firms who show evidence that the health and safety of their employees is a top priority. And with billions of dollars worth of infrastructure growth coming in the next few years to Ontario, the concerns raised previously about the COR™ program have switched from "do we really need this?" to "how do we achieve this?" As the IHSA is the only authority having jurisdiction to grant COR™ in the province of Ontario, there's an ongoing process in place to help with communications and facilitation of the program. The OGCA, as a member of the Industry Advisory Panel, will be meeting regularly with IHSA to address any concerns brought forth by its members and new benefits and services will be put in place. With a strategy for continuous improvement to the COR™ program, MOL accreditation is not far off, and with major project owners phasing in mandatory COR™ certification over the next few years, the competitive edge will be there for firms willing to invest in COR™. But the true value in the program is its ability to present an 789305_Marsh.indd 1 organization as having demonstrated health and safety excellence within the industry and community in which they serve, because that's the expectation of a national standard: knowing that when projects are being awarded, COR™ certified firms will do the right thing concerning the safety of their workplaces. ■ 1. Research findings released in 2015 from a study conducted by the University of British Columbia showed a 12% reduction (year over year) in lost time injuries and fatalities, and a 17% reduction in serious injuries within workplaces participating in COR™ for 10 years.
