Super Sucker Hydrovac Service Inc. isn’t simply a work environment, it’s an effective team environment, and as such creates a level of importance on the health and safety of its workers that is integral to the entire operation. In an effort to develop a culture of watching out for employees, clients and the public, senior management recognized that the company’s internal responsibility system needed to go above and beyond a few safety certifications – so it was determined that the Certificate of Recognition (COR®) should be the standard to reach.
For Super Sucker Hydrovac Service Inc. to achieve COR® Certification, the company had to go through a rigorous audit of their policies and procedures around safety. The audit process identified areas where the organization was doing well, and areas that could be improved to achieve the certification. The process also provided the education requirements of management, supervisors and workers to achieve and maintain. With COR® Certification now complete, Super Sucker Hydrovac Service Inc. not only has the tools to manage its own workplace safety program, it also shows clients and the industry an outstanding commitment to health and safety. COR® is recognized throughout Canada as a program that demonstrates to others the priority an organization places on a quality health and safety management system, as it is something that needs to be maintained daily in order to retain it year over year.
COR® Certification also has benefits beyond worker safety. While the health and safety of workers is most important, COR® Certification also has a positive effect on the bottom line as a safe workplace has little to no downtime, incident investigations, or time lost due to injured workers. All of these factors equate to lower monetary costs on projects, which translates into savings that are realized not only by the organization but to its clients as well.
