Alberta COR On-Site Auditing Suspended

September 28, 2021

Immediate suspension of on-site data gathering activities by COR auditors
In response to Alberta’s Public Health Emergency, the COR program is implementing an immediate suspension of on-site data gathering activities by COR auditors. This means:
  • The use of on-site observations is suspended.
  • The use of remote documentation reviews and remote inteviews, (e.g., video calls, phone etc.) are required.   
    • Audits conducted based on review of documentation and interviews are eligible for three-year COR certification.
    • Audits conducted based on review of documentation-only are eligible for one-year COR certification or for COR maintenance.
  • Auditors must cease on-site data gathering for audits that are currently in-progress. If you have questions, or require assistance to make this change, please contact us.
Employers must provide documents to auditors through electronic means, when possible. If only paper records are available, auditors must follow a safe method to collect the records (such as curbside pick-up).
These auditing measures are in effect until December 31, 2021 will be re-assessed for 2022. 
For further updates review the 2021 Auditing Guidelines which will include options for SK and MB. 

Our goal:

Zero injuries.

Zero incidents.
