Some documentation is required by legislation, and some is specifically required under the COR® program to reflect best practices in the industry in demonstrating due diligence. Doing the right things in health and safety is obviously an important part of protecting your workers. Documenting the right things helps protect the company and its owner(s), manager(s) and supervisor(s). COR® helps you keep track of your company’s health and safety programs, procedures, records, training certificates etc. Consider it similar to the Canada Revenue Agency doing a financial audit on an income tax return. If you didn’t keep your receipts and other documentation you have no proof of your revenue and expenses. Likewise, if you don’t keep your health and safety documentation it would be a significant gap in proving your due diligence.
