On occasion new requirements are introduced within the COR® program, due to one or more of the following:

  • New requirements under the provincial OHS Act and Regulations or the Federal Canada Labour Code;
  • New PRIME requirements;
  • Other new WorkplaceNL requirements; and/or
  • COR® initiated requirements to meet best practices and/or national standards.

For example, when the provincial OHS Regulations were revised in 2009, one of the items we needed to add to our COR® program was the requirement for hearing conservation programs.   To the extent possible, members will be provided with ample and sufficient lead time and assistance to meet any new requirements. Any proposed changes to COR® Program requirements are vetted through the NLCSA Technical Committee and then put forward to the Board of Directors for review and final approval/rejection.
