SECOR Program Update - Binder Submissions

July 6, 2021

Small employer audits to be registered and submitted online
As of January 1, 2022, Energy Safety Canada (ESC) will require all small employer audits to be registered and submitted through our online portal.

Submissions sent in binder format (i.e. through the mail) will no longer be accepted as of January 1, 2022.
Reason for the Change: The online submission method allows for faster turnaround times, ease of revisions to the audit during the review process, provides guidance for employers on what is required to be submitted and eliminates the cost and environmental impact of shipping and supplies. Lastly, it eliminates any hazards related to pandemic related events.

We’re here to help you get ready: Use the following presentations to learn more about the steps in the process:

     > SECOR Online Request presentation - Outlines the eight simple steps for registering your SECOR audit
     > SECOR Online Submission presentation – Outlines the steps to follow to submit your audit online               

Additional information and resources are available on our Online SECOR Submission webpage under the Resources section.  
  • Webinars focused on using the Online SECOR Tool are in the planning stages. These webinars will walk you through the process and provide an opportunity to ask questions.
  • Over the coming months, we will develop and post a list of frequently asked questions on our website.

Our goal:

Zero injuries.

Zero incidents.
