Action Plan Application Process Re-Opened

March 23, 2020

New Action Plan Application Deadline: April 15, 2020
Action Plan Application Process: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Energy Safety Canada has re-opened the Action Plan Application Submission Process.  If you haven’t already applied and been approved you now have a chance to do so.

The new deadline to apply is April 15, 2020.

Action Plans can be used in lieu of conducting a maintenance audit in order to maintain a company's COR, provided the company meets the necessary requirements.

Benefits: An Action Plan maps out a process to address any gaps identified in previous audits, and is an effective way for companies to maintain their COR and continue enhancing their safety program.

  • The employer must have a current regular COR. (Please note - WorkSafeBC currently does not support Action Plans.  If you hold a BC COR a regular maintenance audit will need to be conducted to maintain the BC COR). 
  • The employers must be in a maintenance year and have completed one full, three-year COR audit cycle.
  • The employer must obtain written approval from Energy Safety Canada to use an Action Plan.
  • The last certification audit must have achieved a 85% or higher as an overall score, or if applicable, achieved an 80% or higher in the previous year's action plan.
