Aecon presented with Certificate of Recognition by Infrastructure Health and Safety Association

Nov 22, 2012

Aecon was pleased to recently be presented with the Certificate of Recognition (COR™) in Ontario by the Infrastructure Health & Safety Association (IHSA).  The addition of the COR Ontario certification to Aecon’s COR certification in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia is evidence of Aecon’s commitment to our “Safety First” core value and being an industry leader in Health and Safety.

Workplaces that achieve COR™ certification demonstrate that they are controlling hazards and risks on their worksites through the development of appropriate standards, employee communications and training, as well as regular reviews.

The certification recognizes achievement of the standard through a comprehensive third-party audit that includes a documentation review, employee interviews and workplace observations.

The COR™ certification is trademarked nationwide and sanctioned by participating members of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Association (CFCSA).

“Aecon is pleased to accept this recognition and proud to be one of the first companies to receive the COR™ distinction,” said Mike Archambault, Aecon’s Vice President of Safety and Insurance.   “Safety is at the core of everything we do at Aecon and it’s very rewarding to have a third party recognize our safety program.” 

Aecon is one of Canada’s largest and most diverse construction and infrastructure development companies.  Aecon and its subsidiaries provide services to private and public sector clients throughout Canada and on a selected basis internationally.  Aecon is pleased to be recognized as one of the Best Employers in Canada.
