In addition to BC, Alberta and Manitoba successfully completing and re-certifying their Certificate of Recognition program (COR™) audits in 2014, Paladin Security in Halifax has achieved this standard of excellence with an A+ score.
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.
Halifax Branch Manager Leanna Brown commended her team, saying; "I’m very proud to say that the Halifax branch scored 99%, with not a single Corrective Action! Both auditors spoke very highly of everything that we have been able to accomplish as a branch, noting that we have far surpassed our competition not only with COR, but also with the quality of our staff, their professionalism and our Paladin culture. They went so far as to say that this was the first time a company was nominated for an award for such a successful audit! This speaks to the hard work and care of our dedicated staff, who ensure the safety of our #PaladinFamily."
"Special thanks to every single Security Officer for committing so wholeheartedly to our OH&S program, and for truly caring about sharing a safe and healthy workplace, many of whom supported each other by studying together at home. This was evident to both auditors who commended the quality of our team and the pride they take in their roles. Huge thanks to HR Manager Jackie Collier on overseeing the development and implementation of our program, with the wonderful help of Terry Sanghera, and to Junior Client Service Manager Paul Nesbit for stepping in to assist with our Committee Meetings and binders, etc., to ensure they meet COR standards each month. Finally, to Client Service Manager Jason Davis, and Field Managers Parker Gallant and Jeff Cleveland, for taking the time after-hours to work closely with our Officers and Supervisors to ensure they have a good understanding of our OH&S program and to guide them along the way. You personify the Paladin difference!"
Paladin Security Corporate OH&S Manager, Terry Sanghera added; “I am so proud of the Halifax branch for achieving the highest COR audit score in our history, which reflects our company's commitment to our 7,000+ workforce's health and safety. Congratulations and thanks to everyone who made this possible. Keep up the great work!”
