Baycrest receives COR accreditation from IHSA

TORONTO—Baycrest Project and Construction Management recently received Certificate of Recognition (COR) accreditation from the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA) for going beyond the minimum requirements to ensure the health and safety of workers and being committed to improving health and safety systems on an annual basis.

COR is an occupational health and safety accreditation program by the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations that verifies a fully implemented safety and health program that meets national standards.

Baycrest hired Diana Gamboa as full-time occupational health and safety manager who helped the company pursue COR accreditation beginning in 2019. Baycrest already had an occupational health and safety management system in place when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down many construction projects in Ontario, states a release. While the shutdown delayed the completion of the accreditation process, the system allowed the Baycrest team to quickly implement a COVID response plan.

“The company culture has been enhanced by the COR certification. Not only is it a priority for us to get the job done, now we also spend time on pre-planning and safely doing everything so everyone goes home safe at the end of the day,” said Julie-Anne Nardi, director of operations at Baycrest, in a statement. “While we went into the COR accreditation for its focus on safety, the process also resulted in improved communication, teamwork and overall quality of our projects.”
