Statistical Evaluation of the COR program
No knowledge of effectiveness of COR and Training.
No easy way to visualize and analyze ongoing performance data.
In the construction sector, a program known as COR (Certificate of Recognition) has widely been used as a method of both establishing a rigorous, internal, audited safety program as well as demonstrating to clients a commitment to safety. However, there has been significant debate as to the effectiveness of COR, particularly for smaller firms, undermining the ability to promote the program across industry.
Our client, a safety association in construction, was in need of a permanent, integrated solution across audit, training and injury performance data. The EHS solution was to integrate in real—time with existing database sources and produce a reliable, accurate and valuable series of dashboarding tools. The product of this work is a combined data set which is available for constant monitoring of performance at the industry and member level.
The ultimate result of this work was a series of research studies largely focused on the effectiveness of COR and demonstrating the significant returns to companies who enroll in the program. Spoiler alert: small firms have seen the most significant results. This exciting outcome will be used to demonstrate the value of the program across the sector and encourage increasing enrolment.
