COR Audits in Alberta from SafeTech Consulting Group

There are many benefits of COR audits for your Alberta business, but it may be difficult in the current economic state. As your partners in creating healthier and safer work environments for all workers, those of us at SafeTech Consulting Group would like to share some tips with you to help reduce the time and money involved with COR audits.


Organization is Key to COR Audits in Alberta

Just as for your business, time is also money for your COR auditors. Contact the auditor in advance to learn what they require you to have ready before they get to your site for the audit. If you have all of your necessary paperwork organized, a lot of time and money can be saved during the process. You will also be given audit questions to review and if you prepare the responses ahead of time and gather any necessary proof, that will also increase your savings.


Prepare Your Workers

Throughout the course of COR audits in Alberta, you should have a worker on standby to be able to find any additional paperwork or people required by your auditor. The more knowledgeable the person about where things are stored, the better. Any personnel directly involved in your health and safety management must also be on hand and available to your auditor while they are on site.


Special Consideration for Computerized Systems

If the documentation required to complete your audit is stored primarily on a computerized system, you should make a dedicated work station available to your auditor. Create a listing of the databases where your health and safety information is located on the system for easier, faster access. Again, an employee who is well-versed in the system who is available to the auditor for the duration will be most helpful.
