Certificate of Recognition (COR)

In our ongoing efforts to make Yukon Energy as safe a workplace as it can possibly be, we require construction contractors who do work for us to have their Certificate of Recognition (COR) or, in the case of small companies with fewer than 10 employees, to have their Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR). These designations are 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 or SECOR 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 (867) 393-5353, or email melanie.pettefer@yec.yk.ca.
