Tender Requirement

In July 2010, in our efforts to make Yukon Energy as safe a workplace as it can possibly be, we began requiring construction contractors who do work for us to be Certificate of Recognition (COR) certified. The COR is issued to employers who develop and implement health and safety programs that meet the highest safety standards as set out by the Northern Safety Network and the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board.

There may be rare cases, such as with one-person rural operations, where it is not practical for them to become COR certified. We will work with those companies to find a solution that will still ensure a very high level of safety.

If you have questions, please call (867) 393-5335 or 393-5353, or email melanie.pettefer@yec.yk.ca.
