COR Program Information On Site Audit Review (OSAR)

April 5, 2023

This communication is for information purposes and is to provide general awareness for BC COR holders on this process. Further communication will follow to those specifically selected for an OSAR. There is no further action required at this time.

Purpose of an OSAR
The WorkSafeBC Certificate of Recognition program requires that Energy Safety Canada completes a random review of recently completed audits, known as an On-site Audit Review (OSAR). Each year, 10% of external auditors are sampled. The reviews provide feedback to auditors to ensure continuous improvement of auditing skills and identify gaps in the audit process to flag for employers.
