Energy Safety Canada offers various options for companies to maintain their COR. Alternatives to the standard COR maintenance audits provide companies with an opportunity to take advantage of diverse evaluation and program enhancement strategies. Intended to both focus company resources onto specific facets of their safety program and to attend to particular gaps in their safety program, many companies may consider such options to be beneficial in the COR maintenance cycle.

Action Plans

Action Plans represent a valuable and effective method for companies to maintain their COR while continuing to enhance their safety program. Action Plans map out a process to address those gaps identified in previous audits while not losing focus on the greater safety program.

Note:  WorkSafeBC is not participating in the Action Plan Program for 2019.  Any changes for 2020 will be communicated with sufficient notice.  

2019 Audit Plan Application - Deadline to submit is January 31

For employers approved to participate in Action Plans please use the below Action Plan Submission Form to complete your proposed Action Plan.  All proposed Action Plans are due on or before March 31.   

Note: Internet Explorer Version 10 or higher is recommended when opening the Action Plan Submission. Prior to using this form please save a blank copy to your computer to work from. 

Note:  Important Deadlines

Amendments, if required,  must be submitted prior to October 31.

Action Plan deliverables are due on or before November 30


 Safety Surveys

Safety Surveys are an effective method for companies with a proven safety management system to meet annual maintenance requirements for both years between certifications, while reducing the resources required for auditing in those maintenance years. There is no pass or fail score. The survey is followed by the creation of an Action Plan with deliverables, key target dates and assigned responsibilities.

Registration - Due on or before January 31

National/International Standard Equivalency (NISE)

The National or International Standard Equivalency (NISE) process allows employers the choice of using a national or an international audit standard (i.e., OHSAS 18001) to maintain their COR. This is only an option during a maintenance year.
