SECOR Certification in Calgary from SafeTech Consulting Group

All too often, employers with less than 10 employees are particularly vulnerable to accidents because they do not have the same resources when it comes to health and safety as large companies or corporations. In an effort to curb incidents and to encourage small employers to implement effective health and safety programs in their work places, Partnerships in Injury Reduction (PIR) offer SECOR certification in Calgary.

Reasons Why You Should Get a SECOR Certification

The most important benefit of SECOR (Small Employer Certificate of Recognition) certification is providing a healthier, safer environment for your workers. Reducing the risk of injury or loss of life due to preventable accidents helps improve employee morale, which leads to increased production. In many cases, an accident that could have been prevented by taking proper precautions can financially cripple a small business and the emotional effects on your employees can be devastating.

An often overlooked benefit of qualifying for SECOR is that there are reduced instances of work stoppages. The cost for certification more than pays for itself when you consider that hazards are assessed and damages are mitigated when a proper health and safety plan is enacted, preventing many incidents that can cause temporary shut downs. 

Worker's Compensation Board premiums are very costly for small employers, but by participating in and maintaining SECOR, you are eligible to receive rebates of up to 20 percent of your WCB premiums paid for your place of employment. This also helps maximize your return on investment in creating a safer and healthier environment for you and your employees.

Why Participating in SECOR is a Good Choice

Now that you are aware of the multiple benefits participating in SECOR certification for your Calgary business provides, you need to determine if you should participate. Here are some criteria to consider:

  • Your business employs 10 or fewer employees
  • You wish to create a healthier, safer environment for yourself and your workers
  • Lost time, injury prevention and property damage are concerns you wish to mitigate
  • Recognizing cost savings through WCB rebates and work stoppages will benefit you
  • You want to be qualified to bid on the many contracts available that require SECOR participation
