In addition to BC and Alberta successfully completing and re-certifying their Certificate of Recognition program (COR™) audits this year, Paladin Security is thrilled to announce that we are the first security company in Manitoba to achieve this standard.
COR™ is an occupational health and safety accreditation program that verifies a fully implemented safety & health program which meets national standards. The objectives of COR™ are to provide industry employers with an effective safety and health management system to reduce incidents, accidents and injuries, as well as their associated human and financial costs. COR™ is now frequently used as a pre-qualifying and/or condition of contract by public and private project owners across Canada.
Paladin Security Corporate OH&S Manager, Terry Sanghera, who oversaw the audit, commented; "Our Winnipeg and Brandon branches have been working hard behind the scenes to accomplish this goal for 2014. Special thanks to every Manitoba employee who put forth the time and effort to make this happen, especially Winnipeg Mobile Manager Durwin Pauls, who managed much of the extensive documentation required, and Client Service Manager Margaret Morlock, who assisted with the audit process with the Construction Safety Association of Manitoba. I am proud to see Paladin continue to strive for excellence, ensuring the security and safety of our people and our clients' properties."
Winnipeg Director of Operations Thor Goodmanson, added; "We are thrilled to join the fold with our security family to reach the pinnacle of OH&S preparedness by receiving COR™ accreditation, endorsed by the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations, Manitoba Labour, SAFE Work Manitoba, Workplace Safety & Health Division and the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba. We are delighted to accept this prestigious award on behalf of the entire Paladin Family, presented to those companies practicing the utmost diligence in national safety standards."
Recent changes have been phased in to the Manitoba Government Tendering Policy," Thor continued, "which now requires COR™ certification for both contractors and subcontractors as a condition of the contract, regardless of the project value. As the first security company in Manitoba to achieve this standard, we are extremely proud of our valued staff who work hard to make us industry leaders in our growing market.
