TORONTO, Jan. 16, 2017 /CNW/ - Plan Group Inc. is pleased to announce that it has achieved CORTM certification in the province of Ontario.
Plan Group understands that protecting the health and safety of its workers at all times is not only the right thing to do but is at the forefront of what Plan Group stands for as a company. Furthermore, the COR™ program, administered in Ontario by the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA), is quickly becoming the standard companies need to reach in order to bid on certain public- and private-sector construction projects.
By achieving COR™, Plan Group is able to demonstrate to its clients that its health and safety management system has been developed, implemented and evaluated on an annual basis through comprehensive internal and external audits. The audit criteria used by COR™ are recognized by industries throughout Canada. Audits are very thorough and typically include interviews, documentation review and observation techniques to evaluate how well the employer is able to identify, assess and control risks to workers.
"CORTM certification in Ontario has been years in the making, years of building and improving a top notch safety program at Plan Group," said Health & Safety Manager Steve Thrasher. "With the hard work of not only the Health & Safety team but also our senior management team and the entire field staff we were able to all work together to achieve this."
Plan Group achieved its first CORTM certification in Nova Scotia in 2015 and the company, recognizing the importance of continuous improvement as well as this certification, is diligently working to achieve the same result in other provinces as it continues to grow its business across the country.
